Thank you to Sherri who, as winner of last month’s mini writing comp, has provided the new writing prompt of ‘An Unexpected Journey’ for October’s competition.

This leaves great scope for interpretation and I look forward to reading the entries once again.

As such I invite you to submit a piece of flash fiction (up to 500 words) or poetry along this theme on the designated competition page.

The last entry date for this month is 24th of October and then people have between then and the end of the month to vote for their favourite, with the next competition starting at the beginning of November and the winner of this month setting the next writing prompt.

Thank you in advance to all taking part and good luck! 🙂
