Details

Hey everyone, we're Project Pen - a digital publisher based in Jordan and the USA, and to misquote some famous poster or another, WE WANT YOU.

----------

Who Are 'We'?

We just launched out new website - ProjectPen.com - and at the moment we're building a story hub created by you - in Arabic and English!

We're trying to encourage creative writing across the Middle East region and beyond - and to read some really great stories while we're at it.

--------

So, where do you come in?

Well, for this competition, we want you to send us a story (subject to our guidelines of acceptability) of up to 1000 words, and we will publish our favourite 10 on our website.

------

What the heck kind of kind of prize is that?

Great question!

We promote our user-submitted stories not only to our audience on our website (which has had a few thousand hits since we launched last month), but we will also do the same on our social media - where we have up to 60,000 interested fans.

We're even getting ready to publish our monthly eBooks, where we gather our favourite submissions and put them on iBooks/Kindle etc.

We're offering you, and your work exposure, and getting some of the best content on our site - yours!

The best part? YOU STILL OWN THE COPYRIGHT to your story - the story you submit could even have been submitted elsewhere.

Good luck, and whatever you do - keep writing!
