Inaugural Contest

Pit your skills in our contest, why not?

This is our first contest and we’d be over the moon if you could be pioneer and submit some of your work for it. There are plans afoot to run the contest twice yearly and compile the best in an annual anthology. This will include winners, runners-up and shortlisters. Not only that but we are toying with the notion of a podcast or a live facebook event in which writers can read their own work. I tell you, that is rewarding!

Hopefully all relevant detail has been included here but please enquire via the comments or email Karen:

Why not visit and join our new lively facebook group 11 Sentences Rock where you can find inspiration, regular challenges and share your work with like-minded pals
