Senior Travel Expert Writing Competition

The Senior Travel Expert Writing Competition will open for entries on November 20th 2014. It’s free to enter and the prize is £100.

Don’t panic if you’ve been nowhere exotic. The theme is ‘City, Town or Village’ and the brief is:

“Submit up to 600 words, non-fiction or fiction, which will persuade the readers of this site to go and visit the city, town or village you have chosen.”

We’ve all been somewhere that we could write 600 words about – even if it’s only our home town. So pick up that pen and have a go!

Visit the Senior Travel Expert website for full details, which should be available once the competition opens for entries on Thursday 20th November 2014.  At the moment you can just see a brief paragraph if you scroll down the page.

Good Luck!

    I nearly didn’t read this one: I don’t go in for exotic travel. Heck, I don’t even have a passport at the moment. However, even I can recommend somewhere British! Thanks for the info.

      Julia – do you mean that you don’t read ALL my blog posts, I’m disappointed in you! But seriously, fingers crossed if you have a go at this one.

    Thanks for the link, Sally. Could be worth a go.

    Thanks for the heads up on this one, Sally. Looks worth a go for 600 words.

    Thanks for this, Sally. My first thought was, I’d love to have a go at that but no, I’m too busy! But I’ve just checked the website and the closing date isn’t until 30 April 2015. I’ve added it to my next year’s to-do list!

      You are organised, Linda. My to-do list goes no further forward than tomorrow! Saw your name mentioned in ‘8 days a week’ in WF – well done!

        Fame at last!
