Working Title Fourth Birthday – Write Us A Limerick Competition!

Back in July 2017, two rather eccentric women had a strange notion that it would be a good idea to start a daily blog offering a broad spectrum of fiction, poetry and general silliness to share their writing with the world and help promote their fellow authors. Four years on we are still at it, bumbling along and trying to make a professional looking fist of it all!

The Working Title Blog Competition for our Fourth Anniversary!

It has become a bit of tradition that we ask you to write something to help us celebrate our anniversary, and so this year we are asking you to pen a limerick on the theme of or including the words: ‘That’s Life’.

Grand Prize!

Aside from the kudos of carrying off the literary laurels and having your limerick 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 limericks and you can check out the kind we write if you scroll back through the blog a bit.

How to enter:

(1) Write a limerick which fits the theme of or includes the words ‘That’s Life’. It can be joyous or bitter, thought-provoking, a comedy or a tear-jerker. You can submit a previously written limerick 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 limerick into the ‘Comments’ box. We do need a working email so we can contact you if you win.

(3) Closing date is 26 July 2021 and the winning limerick will appear on the blog on 2 August 2021 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 limericks listed as finalists – and any others we quite like – will be shared on the blog over the next two to three months. You will be emailed in advance to tell you when your limerick will be appearing on the blog.

NB: By entering we assume you are granting us permission to reproduce the limerick 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!
