Daily Mail novel competition October deadline
Not sure if you've seen this, but the Daily Mail are running a yearly competition for unpublished novelists. You need to write the opening lines of a novel between 50 and 150 words introducing the word set. It could be a set expression, a set-to, setting off, or you can use it as an adjective, noun or verb.
The winner will receive £400 in book tokens and a place on an Arvon writing course worth about £500. The 5 runners-up will receive book tokens ranging from £150 to £300.
I'm having problems accessing this on their website, so incase you are too, the contact details and submission guidelines are:
Send your entry with your name, address, telephone number and email address on the same page, to arrive by Friday, October 29, to The Mail on Sunday Novel Competition, PO Box 150, Rochester, Kent ME1 9AG.
Hope it's of interest!
