    • Hi Carol,

      A new theme will be announced in the next few days. Deception and Bad Judgement remain open until the end of the competition overall.

      Good luck!

  1. So, can you only enter particular themes in the month they are posted? It’s nearly June, so will I only be able to enter June’s theme?

    • Hi Mary,

      You can enter a total of 3 stories between February – November 2012 on any of the themes before the overall end of the competition. However, you can only enter one story for a theme.

      Good luck!

  2. It’s a pity we can’t submit to more than three stories, I did want to submit one for each theme, but I guess the workload for you guys must be huge, so I understand. I sent my last story in, Hope its enjoyable and thanks for the opportunity to do this… It was fun….

    Now I have to wait until November for the results.


  3. I was thrilled to be one of the winners butf feel I should point out that a) Bloomsbury don’t seem to have a copy of the e-book on their website, b) Amazon only have kindle copies and c) Waterstones are charging £5.26 for the ‘free book’! I don’t mind paying £5.26 but would rather pay it to Bloomsbury who made this possible, than Waterstones!
