This week’s market for you is a little different:
‘Txt Lit’ describes itself as ‘a new literary genre of creative writing using a mobile phone texting system, or SMS (Short Message System). At txtlit.co.uk we provide a platform where you can test your writing skill, have a chance to gain financially and have your work published on the Internet, through what we believe to be the easiest to enter writing competitions in the UK’.
Sadly, you must have a UK mobile phone provider to enter so this isn’t for overseas entrants, but perhaps there’s something similar in your country.
The website details lots of useful information, including helpful tips on what they’re looking for: http://www.txtlit.co.uk/
Competitions are held monthly, at a cost of £1, plus the cost of a text message. Check the website for the current theme of the month.
A prize of at least £50 goes to the winning story.
To enter, using your mobile phone, text the keyword, STORY followed by a space and then your story to 82085. The story itself must be in no more than 154 characters including spaces and punctuation.
