Win your story as a festive podcast

Story horse cr Judy DarleyWhat could be more magical than hearing your own short story aired as a podcast this Christmas Eve?

The Simple Things and Story Horse are collaborating to make this happen for one lucky reader. To enter their competition, all you need to do is email your most heart-warming, original and beautifully written tale, of 700 words or fewer, to thesimplethings@icebergpress.co.uk.

The closing date is 14 December 2014, so get your skates on!

The winning entry, as judged by Story Horse and The Simple Things’ editor and books editor, will be narrated as a podcast, to be released on Christmas Eve. The winner will also receive £150 to spend at Story Horse, where you’ll find covetable woolens, wellies, jewellery and more.

And in case you were wondering, the phrase Story Horse is a friendly Irish greeting, used particularly in the north of Dublin, where a cry of “What’s the story, horse?” basically means: “how are you doing?”
