READER WRITING COMPETITION WITH SNOW+ROCK
THEME: THE SURPRISE
There’s £400 worth of Snow+Rock vouchers up for grabs for the winners of our first reader writing competition of 2018/19 – that’s got to be worth taking time to put pen to paper.
Fall-Line readers have always been an adventurous lot. With all those days, months, years – heck, even a few lifetimes – on the slopes, we know your heads are crammed with tales from the mountains: some happy, some heroic, some hilarious… some, frankly, a bit weird. Now is the time to reach inside that head and pull out your finest stories, as we launch this winter’s first fabulous Reader Writing Competition.
We so loved hearing your snowy stories last winter (on the themes of Line of Your Life and The Breakthrough?) that we’ve once again teamed up with Snow+Rock for our put-pen-to-paper contest.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
For our autumn competition, we have £400 of Snow + Rock vouchers to award to our three winners: £200 to our overall winner and – because it’s always so difficult to pick only one winner – two £100 vouchers for the runners-up.
WHAT’S THE THEME?
The theme for the first competition is ‘The Surprise’. On the slopes, obviously. Basically, we’re looking for your most memorable ski stories, told well.
Your day could be memorable for something incredible, poignant or ridiculous; it could be when someone ended up in a bit of a pickle.
How to write it?
However you like. First person, third person, past tense. Future subjunctive [say whaat? Digital Ed]. Poem,. Fact. Fiction. Whatever. (Actually, maybe not fiction).
HOW TO ENTER
To enter, email your story – and any pictures you have that go with it – to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 8 February 2019 with the theme and subject line ‘The Surprise’.
The word count should be between 450 and 500 words. If you’re successful, one of our team will be in touch by 11 February. The first winning stories will appear in our Spring Issue (on sale 1 March).
