Motivational Monday! Dialogue-Only Short Story Competition

Dialogue is an important part of any story, and there are many conflicting views about just how much dialogue you should use. 
               This week's featured competition invites you to write a short story using only dialogue!

So, your story should be between 1,500 and 1,700 words long and must contain only dialogue. Have you ever tried to write anything like this before? I like it, it's a challenge and a bit different to what you usually find. 

The closing date is the 15th of February, so you've got a couple of weeks to put it together.

This competition is hosted by Writers Online and there is a small entry fee. For subscribers to WO the entry fee is £3, and for every else it's £5.

To submit your work head over to their site and submit your entire work in a single file using the links provided at the bottom of the page.

The winner of this competition will win £200 and publication in Writing Magazine. One runner up will also receive £50 and publication online.

Please remember to check the website for formatting guidelines and more information, sadly many great stories, poems and literary works are disqualified in many competitions simply because the writer did not use the desired formatting, don't let your work be one them!

Happy Writing & Good Luck
