Those of you who follow my blog will know how much I love France and that my other half is part French and that we visit France often. So, I am especially delighted that the online creative writing school, writingclasses.co.uk, has been invited to support The Good Life France‘s wonderful writing competition – I am the co-director of writingclasses.co.uk, which I founded in 2002. You can read about how that came about here.
There is no entry fee for the competition and some fabulous prizes – including a top prize of a ten week online creative writing course from, yes, you guessed it, WritingClasses!
The Contest: Your entry should be about France or French related and it is entirely up to you what you write about. Perhaps you’d like to write about your favourite place in France, where you live in France, your memories of France, the first time you saw the Eiffel Tower, gastronomy, a festival or event, culture, history, a French icon… maybe you’ve never even been to France but you dream of visiting… if it’s about France or French related, The Good Life France would love to hear from you.
How to Enter: Write an article of up to 1000 words. The post should be sent as a word document. The Good Life France encourage you to make your submission online as early as possible before the deadline. (See The Rules for more information on how to enter).
The Good Life France would love you to include images to illustrate your blog post but they have a BIG library of photographs to help if you’d like that. If you use someone else’s photo, please get permission and tell them who to credit. (For more information see The Rules).
Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org – she’ll notify you if you make the short list for the jury to discuss and judge.
The deadline for receipt of entries is: Friday 11th April
The winners will be announced: 28th April
