Special discount for previous participants of our writing competitions. Do get in touch!

THEME/GENRE: Open theme BUT we want you to use swear words and/or insults in your short story. HOWEVER, the swear words and insults must be pastry- and/or chocolate related.

"I don't like you, you croissant!"
"Get lost, you Mars bar!"
"Malteser off!"
"Get the Twix out of here!"
"Don't be such a doughnut!"

You get the idea... While the theme is open, it may be Easter related. Think of characters like Monster Daffodils, Mad Easter Bunnies, Detective Chickens and Missing Easter Eggs.

As always, if you have any questions, we are only a message away!
