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 May is "Wasted".

There are often stories in the media about waste. The amount of food that is wasted in the UK each year for example; crops ploughed back into the ground or left to rot because it doesn't meet supermarket or consumer standards. And didn't you mother always tell you not to waste the food on your plate and to think of the starving. We also hear about talent that is wasted. Someone with an amazing skill or ability who chooses or is forced down a route other than what they might really excel at. What about wasted time? Something we will never get back. How much more productive could we have been if we didn't have to stand in that queue or wait for the bus or train that never arrives?

So don't you waste any time in working on your Txtlit entry for May. Get the grey matter working and get your entry to us before the end of the month.

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 May 2017 to enter.
