  1. your name (pen names are allowed)

  2. your address

  3. your email (if different to the one you send it from)

  4. the title of your story

  5. your Order Number (entries can be bought from our online shop here: Shop) [adult competition only - children can just ignore this bit!]

  6. the word count of your story

If you have any queries or problems, please contact

Make sure you've read the T&Cs below - they are different to previous years, so please double check them!
