This is the first time that Beeston U3A has launched a Short Story writing competition.
The theme of the short story:
We would like you to take any song title and to use it as the inspiration for your story.
It can be any genre.
Please note: there is no copyright attached to using the name of a song. However, you must not use the words of the song in your writing as they belong to whoever owns the copyright.
The competition is open to every member of Beeston U3A whether they belong to the writing group or not. We are aware that our group does not have a monopoly on creative writing and there may be budding authors in our community who do not wish to belong to our group but who would love to “give it a go”.
This competition will also be open to writing groups in our cluster U3As (Long Eaton, Stapleford and Ilkeston).

Please note that it is not a competition for professionals. Please do not enter if you have earned £300 or more from short story writing. Also, please do not enter a story that has been a winner in another competition.
