Details of the MAY 2014 Creative Writing Competition.

The topic this month has been set by the winner of the March 2014 competition, “americanmum”.

Americanmum’s selection is as follows …

“The topic I pick is “PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.”

Whether used as a setting or a plot device, a public transport could be the site of a chance encounter, the scene of the crime, or the means of escape. It could be a double-decker London bus, the Paris Metro, or a Vaporetto in Venice. I hope this topic will pique at least a few imaginations”
