More details here but in a nutshell, you have until 31st January 2013 to send your story – which must be EXACTLY 100 words (not 101 or 99!) by email to: email@example.com
It doesn’t say whether you can submit more than one entry, so I assume you can. But you have to be a UK resident. There are categories for children too.
As usual, Reader’s Digest are claiming the copyright of all entries. Which effectively means that, once you press ‘send’, they can do what they like with your story. But as it’s only 100 words (not exactly a novel or something likely to be turned into a film..) AND they have, up to now at least, done the decent thing and paid for any entries that they’ve published (in addition to the winners), then I don’t have a problem with that – but if you do, then don’t enter. Simples!
It’s worth looking at the commended stories from last year, as that will give you a good idea of what kind of thing they’re looking for (but, obviously – try to be original!!)
I’ll be having a go at this one too. Good luck to everyone!!
