Using the photo for inspiration, create a story that depicts a man on a journey by train, but a journey to where? What happens to him en-route? Who does he meet? What happens when he reaches his destination? We welcome creative interpretations of the theme and your completed submission must be received on or by the 7th April 2012.

You have up to 2000 words including the title and your submission must be original and previously unpublished.

Please send your submission by email to and write the competition title in the subject line.

If you fancy winning £150, then pay your entry fee today and submit your entry as soon as you are ready.



Please note that it does take time to read and re-view each and every competition submission, so please be patient. Winners are announced on the website and in the free weekly newsletter. We publish only the overall winning submission which means that the other prize winners and those who are not successful are free to enter their work into other competitions.
