RAC SHORT STORY COMPETITION - DEADLINE 9:00 a.m. 11 September 2014


Once upon a time, in a land not so far away …


To celebrate the launch of the RAC’s new 5* Defaqto European Breakdown Cover, we’ve created a national short story competition based on the theme of driving in Europe.

The Driving Abroad Short Story Competition 2014 is a great opportunity to showcase your writing talent. And if you win you’ll scoop £500 and FREE RAC 5* European Breakdown Cover for a year. Plus, you’ll also have your story published in the RAC’s online club magazine.

Two runners up will be awarded £100 M&S vouchers and all shortlisted entries have the chance to be published on our website.

The competition will be judged by Ben Hatch, the well respected and loved writer of brilliantly funny road trip books such as Are We There Yet? and The Road to Rouen. So if you’re a would-be writer over the age of 18, why not submit a short story?

There’s a 1,000-word limit and it must follow a short story narrative, rather than just accounts of a driving holiday abroad. And if the story includes the UK it must also include one or more other countries or regions of the EU.

We look forward to reading your stories – good luck!

If you have any questions please email sarah.rice@rac.co.uk - this is for queries only and entries sent to this address cannot be accepted.
