Not just dashing swordplay and deadly duels, but the cut of a scissor or knife, the thrust of a stage or pornstar, or the dazzling drama of intellectual debate can be your subject for our CUT & THRUST event on Tuesday May 9th. (We would love some actual swordplay though ...) Send your original unpublished stories of 800-2000 words as a .doc, .docx or .rtf to email@example.com by 11.59pm on Sunday 2nd April.
The small print: Please don't put your name in the document as we like to judge anonymously - just in the email. Questions? Full submissions guidelines are here. We don't, alas, pay in £ or $ but winning authors get free entry to the event, drinks all night and/or a book of their choice, plus an HD video and MP3 podcast of a professional actor reading their story.
