Write A Drabble & Help Us Celebrate Our Third Anniversary!

Three years ago two slightly crazy women started this project we call the Working Title blog we had no idea what we were doing or how to do it! Three years on we are slightly crazier, with even less idea of what we are doing, but still at it offering you a daily short read to go with your coffee or tea break with a poem or drabble as a bonus. In addition, we’ve featured many indie authors and reviewed some great books. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed it almost as much as we have – perhaps even more. Now as we reach our third birthday we ask you to join us and celebrate!

The Working Title Blog Drabble Competition for our Third Anniversary!

We love drabbles on the Working Title Blog, you may have noticed, but we don’t often get to feature those by other authors. This contest aims to remedy that!

Grand Prize!

Aside from the kudos of carrying off the literary laurels and having your drabble hailed as the winning entry, if you win you will be offered an ‘Author Feature’ on the Working Title blog to showcase and help promote your writing. The winner can also choose any ebook published by Jane Jago or E.M. Swift-Hook.

The Judges.

That would be us Jane Jago and E.M. Swift-Hook. We both write drabbles and you can check out the kind we write if you scroll back through the blog a bit.

How to enter:

(1) Write a drabble which includes the word ‘cake’. The other 99 words are entirely up to you! It can be joyous or bitter, thought-provoking, a comedy or a tear-jerker.
You can submit a previously written drabble that fits the theme provided that it is free from any legal/copyright encumbrance that would prevent it from being posted on this blog.

(2) Submit your entry to the Working Title blog. To do this, send us your entry by carrier-pigeon or snail mail, PM or loud-hailer. Or you can use our Contact Page. Just paste your drabble into the ‘Comments’ box. We do need a working email so we can contact you if you win.

(3) Closing date is 31 July 2020 and the winning drabble will appear on the blog on 7 August 2020 together with a list of all the finalists. The winner will be offered an Author Feature on the blog and may choose a prize of any one ebook published by Jane Jago or E.M. Swift-Hook and will be emailed a .mobi of the book of their choice.

(4) All drabbles listed as finalists will be shared on the blog over the next two to three months. You will be emailed in advance to tell you when your drabble will be appearing on the blog.

NB: By entering we assume you are granting us permission to reproduce the drabble in one post on the Working Title blog.

If you have any questions, please leave them as a comment on this post and we’ll get right back to you to answer it!

Huge thanks from Jane Jago and E.M. Swift-Hook to all those who have contributed to the Working Title Blog thus far, whether as guests or as readers.

Here’s to the next year!

  1. My drabble:

    As disguises went it was not too bad. Easy to apply, easy to cake on, the smell was earthy with a bit of something Relefe could not put her finger on. Smell was important as the Clicks had an extraordinary sense of smell, relying upon it as their eyesight was poor. Relefe was certain her partner might have been taken. Told to stay close as they fanned out from the ship, Nelee ignored the commands. She jumped at a touch, Nelee was invisible completely covered with his earthy, muddy mixture then he wiggled in next to her to wait.
