MAY 2014 Creative Writing Competition. How to locate the stories and where to vote.

 

The deadline for  the May  2014 Creative Writing Competition passed at Midnight on Saturday the 31st. of May. 2014.

A  total of 13 entries have been accepted and links to the stories are given below.

The topic for May 2014 was set by the winner of the March 2014 competition, “americanmum”.

The chosen topic was “Public transportation” and was described by americanmum thus …

“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”

*****************************************

Voting can now commence and will continue until 11 p.m. on Sunday the 8th. of June 2014.
