This is the final call for passengers bound for the Book a Break Short Story competition (this year’s theme: The Journey). The gate will close on Sunday 19th February, 6 pm GMT. Please ensure that your stories remain within the 2000 word limit – excess weight may mean that you will be barred from travelling. Many thanks to those already on board. Your participation is greatly appreciated. For in-flight entertainment while you wait for the results, we suggest Cat Tales, the anthology from last year’s submissions. Proceeds go to two charities, Cats Protection and The Against Malaria Foundation. On behalf of this year’s judge, Ingrid Jendrzejewski, we welcome you all on board and wish you a pleasant journey. It is a pleasure to have you travelling with us.
