Even in only 100 words, an author can create a whole narrative arc – a proper story with a beginning, a middle and an end. This exercise is a favourite one of international bestselling author Jeffrey Archer, and one that Curtis Brown Creative and Kobo Writing Life adapted into an exciting challenge for Kobo Writing Life authors.
The 24 stories in this eBook include "Unique" written by Jeffrey Archer, the 20 stories from the semi-finalists in the Jeffrey Archer Short Story Challenge plus an additional 3 stories that are included as honourable mentions. The 20 semi-finalists represent the best of approximately 1000 stories submitted by Kobo Writing Life authors as part of this contest.
At London Book Fair 2013 on April 15th, Jeffrey Archer will announce the 3 finalists from the 20 semi-finalists included in this collection. Those three winning writers will have the chance to send the 3,000 word opening from a novel-in-progress to Curtis Brown’s team of literary agents, who will provide a detailed written report on their work. And one of these three will be selected by Curtis Brown as the overall winner and offered a place on our forthcoming online novel-writing course, with fee paid for in full by Kobo.
