Eligibility Requirements (Criteria)

  • To enter the competition, your story must include the spoken line: ‘Here we go again’.
  • Your story should be between 750 and 1000 words. This gives your plot and characters space to develop but keeps your story tightly focused.
  • You can write about whatever you like, as long as you respond to the competition theme. The current theme is on our home page. We’re happy to read stories in any genre. Above all, we’re looking for great stories, beautifully told.
  • Just remember to pay a separate entry fee for each story.
  • We accept stories from all over the world, as long as they’re written in English.
  • Your story must not have been published, or self-published, before. This includes appearing on any blog, website or forum.
  • Please tell us your full name and the name we should use to publish if you win. Please don’t paste your story into the body of your email.
  • Your story should be:
  1. A Word document – or similar, editable file (such as .rtf or .odt)
  2. Double-spaced
  3. In a 12-point, easy-to-read font
  4. Please include the title at the top of page one but don’t add your name – we judge the competition blind so don’t want to know who’s written each story until we’ve picked the winners.
