Creative Over Christmas


Start the year with a £20 gift voucher.

Like many other writers, I have decided to take a little break over the festive period. I never say I am not writing, because the bug can hit at any time, but I have no plans or schedules to keep. If you are like me, then you might like this little competition to keep you creative over Christmas.

To start 2021 off, I am running a writing competition, where the winner will be awarded a £20 gift card for Amazon. I am happy to change this to the currency of your country.

The rules are easy, write an article around the theme of ‘love in a pandemic.’ This can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry. It can also be any length that you wish. Microfiction is as welcome as a 15-minute post. You can also enter as many pieces as you wish, as long as the theme is there. The closing date for this is January 31st and I will inform the winners by 14th February.

Once you have written this piece you can publish it on any platform you wish. If you make money from Medium, that makes no difference to me. If you can’t find a publication for it, then consider my About Life publication, drop a message below if you want to be added as a writer. To keep it fair, I will not be editing any of these pieces, not through my publication or coaching package. You are also welcome, to publish these on your blogs or other social media, just leave me a link to find it on Patreon.

To enter you need to be at least a £1 member of my Patreon. I will place a post on there where you can drop your links to the articles you are submitting. You can join for a month and then leave after entry, although I would prefer you stayed and enjoyed the other benefits. I would also really appreciate you sharing this competition, so more people enter.

Thank you

Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who has read my articles, offered words of encouragement and generally supported me. The writing community has become an intricate part of my life and I could not imagine not being here.

Writers are some of the most friendly, supportive people I have ever met. Happy Christmas and New Year to you all. I can’t wait to read all your amazing articles in 2021.
