The writing contest is for a short story set against the background of a National Trust property - a historic house, a romantic ruin, a stretch of coastline or any other Trust venue you like. The stories should be in the romance genre and between 1500 - 2000 words. Details of the contest are here on The Lady website. The winner will be published in The Lady magazine. The runner up will receive a hamper of books worth £200.Information on the creative writing courses can be found on the National Trust website here. And for all those who can't make it to one of the courses I would be very happy to email my writing articles, hints and tips. Just drop me a line if you would like any of these - they can be found on my website here!
Good luck to everyone who enters!
