More Prompts and a Heads Up

Children-in-Need Night is Friday November 17th.

We are looking for 100_ writers to join our group (23 last year raised £10,000) to write-write-write to prompts throughtout 30 Hours from 1800 THURSDAY to 23:59 Friday.

The main challenge is 2100 Thursday - 2100 Friday (24 Hours) but the time-slots are widened to allow for different countries etc.

Individuals may choose much shorter times - you do not have to sign up for the 24 or 30 Hour stints.

Entry is £25, of which £10 goes to prizes (as incentive), £10 goes to CIN, and £5 is for copies of the anthology at cost.

Entrants would also raise sponsorship and we would like to aim for £50,000.

We are liasing with a publisher as we speak but there WILL be quality publications from this.

Boot Camper TomC has signed up again. He writes: How could I say no? After last year's CIN Blast I sold eight pieces for £120!"

The above should tell you that the burst of energy (early) and writing when out of your skull, produces quality, stuff that suprises us all.

Join us and help kids.
