August 2014 Creative Writing Competition. Details and how to enter here!


Details of the AUGUST 2014 Creative Writing Competition.

The topic this month has been set by the winner of the June competition chester_goode and he has suggested that entries should be in some form of script for a production on stage or screen (or even radio). No entry is likely to be set out in any form that a professional actor would recognise, but as long as the writer’s intentions are clear the entry will be acceptable.

chester’s original suggestion was posted and comments were made by some writers. These, for what they are worth, can be found here on this link …

So putting it as succinctly as possible … pick the bones out of that! :-))

But I am sure that inventive minds will rise to the occasion as always.


Links to all the June stories, including chester’s winning story, can still be found here …


The length of the story should be between 500 and 3000 words.

Closing date for entries –Midnight  SUNDAY the 31st.. of AUGUST 2014.

The period for receiving votes will be announced at the close of the competition.Votes will not be accepted until the competition closes.


Publish stories on your personal blogs and  post a link to the story in the form of a comment here on this creative writing group link …
