March Writing Competition

Post by HEPZIBAH » Wed Mar 06, 2013 9:52 pm

The subject for this Writing Competition has been chosen by Dusak - as winner of the February competition

The topic for the next competition is a short story of 1,250 words or less entitled THE HOTEL.
You are starting your first day as a Hotel travel writer. You're to stay overnight and the following day undercover and give an unbiased report. Does the hotel live up to the brochures description? Where the staff crazy, or your fellow guests even crazier? The hotel can be anywhere in the world.


Writing Competition Guidelines

- Entries should be submitted by pm to Hepzibah who will then upload them for anonymity.

Bumping up for your attention and having to write more than just 'bump' to do it! :roll:

Sadly, there were only two entries submitted (by the same author) for the March Writing Competition. That being the case the March Writing Competition has been closed. It is hoped that there will be more writing competitions in the future, but naturally these can only be held if there is sufficient interest from members.


Dusak, I thought you chose an excellent subject and I am only sorry that the challenge was not taken up by others.
