Write a 500 word short story with a Christmas feel on the theme of ‘The Secret’?
This week Ireland AM launched it short story competition in association with Women’s Way Magazine – they are looking for traditional Christmas Spirit short stories with the theme of ‘The Secret’ (judges tip: this doesn’t have to be the title – with only 500 words, make your title work for you!)
