Turn your writing into a book! And if successful adapted into a film to help children across Britain!
We need your creative non-fiction submissions in order to help Britain’s children have equal opportunities. Submissions will be published on our website, and our expert team will select their favourite 100 and the 20 winners to be published will be selected by public vote .
Your 5000 to 7500 word story must be auto-biographical and about a day in the life of you, an ordinary British person. It may be a happy day, a tragic day, or even a normal day; our only requirements are your story must be interesting and must be something others enjoy hearing about.Read More
How It Works
In order to begin, we need your writing! We are looking for non-fiction ‘a day in the life’ stories from ordinary British people like you! If your story is selected, we will try to make it part of a published book.
We are accepting 5000 to 7500 word autobiographical (non-fiction) stories about one day in the life of you, an ordinary person. The story may be about any type of day: happy, sad, tragic, or uneventful. The only requirements are it must be interesting, and it must be something others enjoy hearing about. Also this project is subjected to British people so while you don’t have to be British your story has to be set in Britain.
Your story must be submitted by 31st October 2017 as we aim to have the completed book published by December 2018. When you submit your story you must also submit a synopsis as this synopsis will be published on our site and be what readers will read to vote for your story to be published and included in the final book.
The Voting Process
The concept of this project is to recruit volunteers to write a non-fictional story about a day in their life.
After the closing date for submissions of 31st October 2017 a summary of the best short stories will be available on our website for you, the public to vote for your favorites. The 20 with the most votes will be put forward for inclusion in the published book – A British Story. We aim to get the book, with 20 stories published by December 2017.Read more
