#100Words story competition shortlist

We’ve been having a wonderful time reading stories longlisted for our international, #100Words story competition inspired by a beautiful photograph of a lighthouse.

With so many creative narratives on the list, the judging has been tough, but we’ve finally agreed the shortlist of stories below.

Congratulations to the 10 writers who made the list!

The #100Words shortlist

What happens next?

Judge, Amanda Saint, now has the difficult task of picking the winners from the shortlist.

We’ll be publishing all the shortlisted stories here on Lightbox Originals on 8th July and will be announcing the winners at the same time.

Our next international, #100Words story competition will be coming in the autumn and will be inspired by another beautiful photograph. 

In the meantime, why not take part in our free, summer writing experience?
