The April 2016 Creative Writing Competition. Details of competition, and how to enter.


Details of the APRIL 2016 Creative Writing Competition.

The topic for APRIL has been set by the winner of the February 2016 competition ‘Seadams,’  who as far as I can remember (I’m afraid I can’t find the comment) has suggested that we have …

A ‘DESCRIPTIVE STORY’ of an object, a place, or a situation, with a minimum of dialogue, or preferably no dialogue whatsoever.


For those that missed them, links to all the February entries, including the top three, can still be found on this link …
The length of the story in April should be  set between 250 and 750 words, and competitors are reminded that multiple entries can be accepted, particularly of the shorter variety.
Closing date for entries –Midnight  SATURDAY the 30th. of APRIL 2016.
The period for receiving votes will be announced on a separate post when the competition closes.
Votes will not be accepted until after the competition closes.



Publish stories on your personal blogs and  post a link to your story in the form of a comment on the group post that can be found on this link …

If you are unable to do this, post your entry as a separate “Update” or “Discussion” in the Creative Writing forum at …


The “prize” for winning this March competition will be to set the topic for Junne 2016.

The competition is open to anyone with an interest  in short story writing, particularly (but not exclusively) to members of the MyT site and/or the Creative Writing Group and Short Story Club sites.

After the competition closes there will be a vote to decide the first three places.
Just after the closing date, details of how to vote and a vote collection point will be set up as a “Discussion” on the Creative Writing Group page.

So, forget the referendum ( but please make sure that you also vote in that at the appropriate time), and use your time to paint pictures for the mind in the form of words.

Believe me, you will find that far more rewarding!
