Is this short story competition 'Up Your Street'?

Sorry - terrible pun...

Just found a new short story competition run by the Guildford Book Festival (word count 1,500, closing date 31 August) with the theme "Up Your Street".

Take a look at the pdf below for more details.

NB: Note to self - start writing down all these comps in some kind of diary/calendar or you'll forget them!

Just a quick message to let you know I LOVE the short story generator! I'll definitely use it when I get round to attempting to do short stories!

Sally - I do! I've got a terrible memory for comp closing dates so I often check your calendar to see what's coming up.

A.Writer - that's fantastic. Why not try writing a short story now? It's quick and, if you don't like what you've written, you can write another one!

It's great to hear that someone likes the generator, A.Writer. A couple of writer friends - one of whom is regularly published in womens mags (as in much more often than I am!) - have told me privately that they think it's a fantastic tool and are definitely going to use it. The main thing they like is how quick it is and how you can just keep clicking until you find something that 'clicks' with them.

I'm very tempted to try my hand at a short story. I've never done one before. I think I might try to do one at the weekend.

I found writing shorts in between working on the novel a great way of recharging the batteries, A.Writer, on the basis that a change is as good as a rest.
