Extreme Short Stories: Jeffrey Archer Writing Competition

The advent of ebooks has breathed new life into the short story, but a new competition by Curtis Brown and Kobo has given it a new twist. The Jeffrey Archer Short Story Challenge,  judged by Jeffrey Archer is for writers in the UK, US and Canada in any genre, submissions: 100-word max.

Rather short, n’est-ce pas?

The prize is a rather yawning free enrolment in a Curtis Brown online novel-writing course, but the proposition is intriguing. Having recently pondered the art of sentence-making (NB the shortest horror story Knock), I’m inspired to enter. For the second time today, challenge accepted!

(FYI, by way of example, the article above is 100-words).
