Short Story Writing Competition
Adding to the wet weather attractions of a seaside village is very tricky, but we think our 50 word short story competition could be the answer. There are classes for under 12, under 18 and open to all ages, with prizes for each class. There are no set topics.
Entry forms can be downloaded from our website, with no cost until you enter the competition proper. (£2 fee per entry)
Entries can be made up to 30th September, with winners notified by the end of October.
Example stories, Rules and Entry forms are available from our website: Charmouthcommunitylibrary.digitalfox.uk
We hope that our competition will brighten up any dull days! Good Luck
