This is incredibly exciting! I’m very proud and pleased to announce that our first contest is opening today! It’s open to any and all writers over on Google+.
There will be three rounds to this contest. The first round will be open to absolutely everyone. The second round will be open to a select few entrants. The third round will be less still, before the winner is chosen by a panel of judges from Literary+.
The theme for the opening round is balance.
As writers we have a lot of balance, juggling our characters, plots, personal lives, work lives etc.
The rules and how to enter:
NO graphic horror.
Maximum word count of 350 words. (I may allow you 354 is you really can’t drop those final 4).
