“Try to break our hearts in under 100 words.”
It’s time to turn on the water works and write a real tear-jerker. It can be fact or fiction, written from the perspective of anyone or thing you choose. Your goal is to make the reader cry…or at least feel very, very sad.

Deadline: Midnight 31 March 2016
Stories will be reviewed by at least 5 individuals who are not competing. Each judge will be asked to pick their favourite and give some feedback.
The person with the most votes will win a small prize (on top of the great prize of glorious confidence in their work, having another complete piece of writing to show off and praise…lots of praise!)
