Can you write a story in just 50 words?
Each month the Scottish Book Trust invite writers to submit short stories of no more than 50 words. They provide a different prompt each month - how you interpret it as a story is up to you.
October's prompt is write a story that features a black cat.
Entries must be submitted by 30 October.
There are four categories for entries, Adult Writers, All-age Gaelic Writers, Young Writers 5-11 and Young Writer 12-18. The four winning stories will be published on the SBT website.
