Pete and Aiden talk about Stories of Life and Feedback Month, including this very practical tip from Pete:
You have to timetable creativity.
So, schedule some time in your diary to write, collect the bits of writing you produce, send it to us before the end of June, and we will get some professional creative writing teachers/tutors to get feedback to you. (They’re all very nice and affirming – don’t worry.)
As far as we know, Stories of Life is the only writing competition in the world to give personalised feedback on story drafts before submissions. This is because we want your story in our 2021 anthology, and we want to help you make your story the best it can be.
Let us work with you to make your story awesome! Submit story drafts here.
