Ten Words Story Contest

ten words

Please note: this competition is now closed!  You can view the winning entry here.

Inspired by the ‘Your Life Story In Six Words Or Less’ post I did last year, I introduce to you the latest competition at Wandering Words!

All you have to do to enter is write your own original story in exactly ten words.  There is no theme – it can be about absolutely anything!

Here’s one I made earlier:

In her handwriting, one word scrawled on my napkin: help.

Send your entries to wanderingwords@outlook.com, with ‘Ten Words’ in the subject line.

What’s the prize?

The winner will receive a £10 Amazon e-voucher, publication on Wandering Words and automatic entry into the Anthology Competition.

The deadline for this competition will be 30th June 2016.

You don’t have to be following Wandering Words to enter, but sharing the competition on social media is greatly appreciated!

Good luck!

    Awesome ^_^ If I weren’t in the middle of a book launch I’d totally do it, but I think I’ve lost my soul somewhere and I can’t find it *_*
