Ta daah! We've opened our annual Winter Short Story competition. If you are a budding creative writer, keen to see your work in print and hopefully win some super-cool prizes, then you need to enter this competition! Just send Young Post a story that is 1,800-2,000 words long. The story must be all your own work and must be set in Hong Kong.
This year's theme is:
On your story's first page, write your name, age, school, and contact phone number. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with "winter" in the subject field and attach your story and a jpg photo of yourself.
The winner will scoop a beautiful Amazon Kindle Paperwhite and case, with loads of vouchers for books. The two runners-up will also receive a Kindle. The top entries will be published in our super Winter Holiday editions.
Closing date is December 10.
