BUGGED...Eavesdrop to Get Published*

BUGGED is a brilliant new writing project for the UK in Summer 2010. This is how it works, so if you live in the UK, like to write, and can listen...

On July 1st 2010, go forth and…eavesdrop! Listen in to conversations and fragments of speech around you. Be discreet.

Write a new piece of work based on what you hear. Poems of up to 60 lines, stories up to 1000 words, flash fiction up to 150 words, scripts up to 5 minutes long.

Submit it to BUGGED by email after July 1st, and before August 15th {see here for more details}.

The best incoming work will be posted on the BUGGED blog. The earlier it arrives, the better chance you have of beating the crowd.

The very best of the work submitted will be published in a printed anthology.

*Obviously more steps are involved, and include writing a story/poem/script worthy of publication...Yes, the title was just to draaaaaaw you in.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment on my blog. I'll be continuing the creative journey long after the 23rd August, so feel very welcome to visit again. Did you paint flowers all over your desk? It's lovely to think that you might have done... Em x

I can't play as I don't live in the UK but I like this idea.
