Have you heard? The 4 weeks online bootcamp designed to get you writing again is BACK. It’s running in November and early December so it doesn’t clash with all those very important mince-pie related events you’re bound to have as December goes on.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, take a look here.

OK, what do you think? You’d like to win a place? Cool!


Here’s how 

1.  Write a short paragraph telling me what you want to write in the next year. I don’t mean that thing you think you should write, I mean what is it that you really truly WANT to write, however huge or ridiculous it seems. What do you dream of writing?  And what you’d like to achieve it? Whether it’s fame and glory or just your own satisfaction, tell me. Make me laugh, make me root for you, tell me whatever you like, just make sure it’s 300 words or less.

2. Post it on your blog or website or facebook account with a link to this page: http://tinyurl.com/bootcampcomp.

3. Let me know about your entry by pasting your entry and linking to it in the comments below or emailing me at hello@urbanwritersretreat.co.uk with the link and your entry. If you don’t have a blog/site/facebook, you can write your answer in the comments or email it to me. You need to complete one of these two options for your entry to count, otherwise I won’t be able to contact you!

Social Media Bonus

I’ll love you a little more if you take the first entry option (publishing your entry on your site and sending it to me), but you can also get bonus points by linking to http://tinyurl.com/bootcampcomp on Facebook or Twitter using the #getwriting hashtag.


What you should know (my competition, my rules!)

Written entries must be under 300 words with no minimum word limit.

The competition closes at 20:00 (London, UK time) on Friday 26th October 2012.

You can enter from anywhere in the world.

The prize is a place on my 4 week online Get Writing! bootcamp, running from Monday 5th November-Sunday 2nd December 2012. It cannot be swapped for anything else, though you can give it to another writer as a gift if you like.

If the winner has already booked on the bootcamp, I’ll refund their money. Whether someone has already joined the bootcamp will have no bearing on my decision.

I will pick the entry that I like best. I get to choose who wins for any reason I choose.

By entering, you agree to take part in publicity (although I would always warn you first).

I’ll announce the winner on or around Monday 29th October.


Ready? Set. Go!
