#GrindstoneGiveaway - Do you want some awesome free stuff?

Today, the 1st of September, marks the 28 countdown to our biggest deadline ever. Three competitions, three disciplines, over £2500 in prizes, along with free places on courses, personal introductions to Lit Agents, and of course more feedback than you can shake a stick at.


But, as if that's not enough, we're also hosting our first ever #GrindstoneGiveaway, a Twitter specific Tweet Party that could win you a bunch of free goodies. So, how does it work?


Well, for the next 72 Hours, we'll be inviting you to respond to a story prompt via tweet, using the tag: #GrindstoneGiveaway


Whoever comes up with the best response will be crowned the winner, and will receive a box full of Grindstone goodies!


What are the goodies? Well, you'll get a box that will contain a Grindstone Tee-Shirt (let us know your size if you win), stickers, bookmarks, and two copies of our magazine!


That's a total value of almost £40.00, and is going to go absolutely free to one bold writer.


Rules of the Competition:

1. This competition is a Twitter only competition, and only tweets sent before 11:59PM GMT on 03/09/18 will be considered.

2. Entries via any other means will not be included.

3. Tweets must contain the #GrindstoneGiveaway to be eligible.

4. Only one entry per person, per competition.


Other than that - be brave, be bold, and above all else, blow us away!


Ready for your prompt? Here it is:

  • Write about a moment of reflection.


And that's it. Just respond to that prompt @GrindstoneLit with a micro story of less than 280 characters, using the #GrindstoneGiveaway and you could grab yourself an excellent goodie box.

Well, what are you waiting for?
