The prize, generously donated by author Ruth Saberton, is a four day residential place on one of her Writers' Courses Cornwall (UK) retreats - http://www.writerscoursescornwall.co.uk. Included is all tuition, 5 star accommodation in Polperro, food at a local inn, drinks and a car parking permit.
Note: As far as I know, this contest is open world-wide, but you'll have to make your own way to Cornwall if you win.
"All you have to send us is the last couple of lines of a story. That's it. Obviously, you have to have written it yourself and not lifted it from some famous piece of work. The lines can be from something you've already written or just made up for the competition, we don't mind. As ever, it can be funny, or clever, or moving, or just bloody good. 40 words max, in the body of an email, and no more than three goes per entrant. Get to it."
Entries should be emailed to danny-AT-wordswithjam.co.uk by no later than 14th January 2011. The winner will be announced in the February 2011 issue, where we will print the shortlist of ten, together with the overall winning entry.

Good luck Writerlies!
