A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! A new month means a new ABC Open 500 Words theme, and for November it’s ‘Someone Who Shaped Me’. As with last month, entries must be non-fiction works between 150 and 500 words that have a picture to go with it.
Some entries have already been posted up on the ABC Open website, so check them out then get yourself published online too. Submissions close November 30, so there’s a whole month to get this one done (yes, that means you, lazy-Kyra).
You can find out more about getting involved here, plus see the ABC Open’s tips and tricks for writing your piece.
Upcoming themes for ABC Open’s 500 words project include –
December 2012: ‘Family Rituals’
Janurary 2013: ‘Like it Or Not’
