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 December Txtlit writing competition theme is "The Shock".

We think this theme is wide open for interpretation. Yes your story has to contain some sort of shock, but what causes that shock, and more importantly what the results or effects of the shock are will be what really makes your story.

Probably an electric shock or news of something totally unexpected are what spring to mind when we hear the word shock, but don't be restricted by convention. Give us a shock with something totally unexpected in your story.

Your interpretation of "The Shock" can be about anyone or anything so long as we can see a clear link. Remember, think about what the effects of the shock are as much as what the shock itself will be.

To enter the competition write a story with a clear link to the theme of "The Shock" 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 December 2017 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.
