If you’re looking to make some writerly New Year resolutions, entering competitions is a great way to boost your confidence while receiving constructive feedback from your peers. The Pinterest Prompt is an excellent place to start too.
If you’re new here, this is how it works. We pick an image we like from Pinterest on the third Wednesday of every month at 2:30pm. You guys then use the image as inspiration for 200 – 400 words of fiction, which you post in the comments below. Each month, we’ll pick our favourite and the author will win a £20 Amazon gift card as well as a spot in our monthly newsletter, where we publish the winning piece of fiction.
Last month you wooed us with tales of New York at Christmas. Seriously, you make it harder and harder to pick a winner, you talented lot. Vicky McMillan really caught our eye (and the eye of her hero, no doubt) with the possibility of a serendipitous, phone-throwing encounter leading to romance. Congratulations, Vicky. You’ll receive your gift card via email and your fiction will be featured in our December newsletter (hitting an inbox near you tomorrow).
Without further ado, here is December's Pinterest Prompt.
Entries are accepted from anywhere in the world, but must be written in the English language.
This feature is for unpublished writers.
Please include your full name with your entry.
December’s Pinterest Prompt is open until 12pm on Monday 13th January.
