Latest Txtlit Competition

Latest Txtlit Competition

Competitions run every calendar month and each month we give you a new theme. You'll find the latest competition theme below.

The first competition theme of 2018 is "Caught in the Act".

Being 'caught in the act' of doing something is usually associated with something sinister such as a burglary, attempted murder or a covert search for clues or information. But of course it doesn't have to be something untoward. The act could be one of kindness. Leaving money, gifts or flowers where the giver doesn't want to reveal his or her identity.

You'll have to give your 'act' plenty of thought to keep it original but you'll also have to consider what the consequences are of being caught. And of course you're going to have to cram that all into just 160 characters.

To enter the competition write a story with a clear link to the theme of "Caught in the Act" in 160 characters or less including spaces and punctuation. Send your story as a text message from a UK mobile phone to our new number 07537 432 432. You have until midnight on the 31st January 2018 to enter.
You will receive a message confirming your entry. You will be charged for one standard text message by your network operator.  If you have a Pay As You Go mobile phone account, you must make sure you have enough credit to cover the cost of a single text message otherwise your entry will not be processed.

Happy writing and Good luck.
