Hello everyone. Yes, the August theme of ‘the first time’ has closed and September’s competition is now open. The theme is ‘not what it seemed’, to be used in any way you would like. Rules, prizes, entry form etc. via https://beaconlitblog.wordpress.com/500-word-competition.
NB. It’s now too late to send any stories for ‘the first time’ (unless it also fits the ‘not what it seemed’ theme and if you have stories for future themes, please don’t submit them until the relevant month as the entry will be disqualified with no refund given and you won’t be able to submit it in the correct month (because we will have seen it). It’s rule number four. 🙂
