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.

April's Txtlit writing competition theme is "The Invention". 

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, meaning that when we are presented with a problem that must be overcome, we will find a way. Many inventions have come about to assist or prolong life; to make it easier or more efficient to get things done. Consider the wheel, the Industrial Revolution and medicines. And where would we be today without the Internet? Not all inventions are for good however. Weapons have become more varied and deadly, to the extent that we are afraid of the consequences of using them.   

Of course the actual invention is only half of the story. It's the effect that it has that really matters. 

What invention will you write about? One that exists already or will you think of something that we need today that is yet to be resolved?

To enter the competition write a story with a clear link to the theme of "the Invention" 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 30th April 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.
