Details of the JUNE 2014 Creative Writing Competition.

It has been decided as the result of an open vote suggested by April’s winner atiller,  that for this month only the rules will be adjusted slightly to allow the story length to be shortened.

Also, for this month only, there will be NO SET TOPIC … so anything goes as long as it doesn’t frighten the horses.

atiller’s winning story in April 2014 was “MONKEY BUSINESS “, and if anyone wishes to read it now, it can still be found here …


The shorter length this month should be between 250 and 500 words.
