Win £2000 for a short story with Amazon


We know that there are a number of budding writers who read Tamebay, many of whom participate in NaNoWriMo each year. Tamebay cofounder Sue was a big fan.

However there’s only 10 days left in November so if you’re falling behind in NaNoWriMo don’t despair, enter Amazon’s Christmas writing competition instead, they only need 350-700 words.

Amazon are searching for a modern day version of Twas The Night Before Christmas, as a gift to families for bedtime reading this Christmas Eve. All UK residents are eligible to apply and you just need to write a story that is family-friendly and Christmas themed. The word limit is between 350-700 words and the competition closes on Sunday the 27th of November.

The winning author will have their story illustrated by professional illustrator Aless Bayliss and it could be read by millions on Christmas Eve. The winner will also get a £2,000 Amazon gift card, a top of the range Fire tablet and future royalties from Kindle Direct Publishing after the promotion period.
