Writing Competition Rules:

  • Only e-mail submissions are accepted. Please copy and paste your piece into the body of the email. We do not accept attachments.
  • Mark your entry clearly with the subject line: My Writing Journey Competition.
  • Each story must have a unique title. Do not use the theme as your title.
  • Use a font such as Arial or Times New Roman, size 12 or more. Use 1.5 or double spacing between lines. We prefer a clear break (i.e. open line) between paragraphs, rather than indenting.
