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.

Your competition theme for July is "Stuck".

When was the last time you considered yourself to be stuck? Was it stuck in traffic? Stuck in a rut, perhaps in a job you hated? Stuck in a relationship that really you should have ended. Or were you stuck on a crossword clue, the one that no matter how hard you tried you just couldn't find the answer; but when finally solved it was oh so obvious. And how many times have you been stuck looking at a blank page. Not knowing how to start your next piece of writing.

There's oceans of opportunity here to write about being stuck, but your real challenge will be telling a story. You'll need to create a reason behind being stuck and decide whether or not the situation is resolved. Will the outcome be good or bad?

To enter the competition write a story with a clear link to the theme of "Stuck" in 154 characters or less including spaces and punctuation. Precede your story with the word STORY and a space and send it as a text message from a UK mobile phone to 82085. You have until midnight on the 31st July 2017 to enter.
You must enter the word STORY and a space at the beginning of your text message which will give you 160 characters in total.
You will receive a message confirming your entry and the competition entry fee of £1 will be charged to your mobile phone bill. You will also 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 entry fee plus the cost of a single text message otherwise your entry will not be processed.

Happy writing and Good luck.
