Sadly due to Covid 19 the year of 2020 will be remembered as the year of cancelled travel plans, lockdown and immobility. Lots of us have been day dreaming of getting away or even just getting out of our own house. For these reasons this competition is challenging wordsmiths to create a travel story that takes its reader on a journey. The destination can be anywhere, on this world or another, and it can be in the genre of your preference. You can create something completely from a vivid imagination or draw on real life experience. The theme of Travel is entirely open to your interpretation. Get out the maps, dust off the travel brochures and get creating an adventure. Stories no longer than 5000 words please. Entry is £7 per story submitted. For rules and prizes please see below.
There will be 3 prizes offered.
1st Prize £1000 and publication in a short story anthology.
2nd prize £500
3rd Prize £250
(Please note that all TWTW prize purses increase with the level of submission so please keep checking back to see the total prize fund - currently stands at £1750 divided as above 02/10/20).
