In case you missed our exciting announcement, here it is for you. In conjunction with the ACT Writers Centre hosting the Boundless Festival keynote speech from Gabrielle Lord, we’re holding a short story writing competition.

Entry is free, and entires are open to everyone: just like the Boundless keynote launch, this is an open-age event. We’re looking for originality, expression, and a really great snippet of what could be a much bigger story.

We’ve taken a sentence from the last page of the first Conspiracy 365 book, Code Black:

“Blindly, I felt my way around the walls.”

That sentence has to be the first sentence in your story. This is the only creative rule.

The prize:

A Conspiracy 365 pack, including the most recent, yet-to-be-launched 14th book.

Two tickets to the Boundless Festival Keynote speech by Gabrielle Lord and featuring Jack Heath
