The 2014 'To Hull & Back' competition is now closed for entries, but don't despair, for the 2015 competition is already open for submissions! Due to the success of the 2014 competition, I've increased the cash prizes for the 2015 competition.

The shortlist for the 2014 competition will be announced by mid-September and winners will be announced in October. The first anthology will be made available on Hulloween 2014.

The 2015 Competition

September 2014 sees the launch of the second ‘To Hull & Back' Short Story Competition, an annual short story contest with a humorous twist that celebrates the most imaginative and amazing short stories from writers all over the world. Some highly prestigious writing contests offer huge cash prizes – Writers of the Future award a top prize of , 000, the BBC award £15, 000 and the Sunday Times give a whopping £30, 000 to their winner. What can you win by entering this competition that contends with these short story prize giving heavyweights? THE most amazing, innovative and sought after writing prize on the planet! Forget the Pulitzer. THIS is the badger.

Prizes

If you’re selected as a winner:

You Will Win Cash

1st Prize: £200

2nd Prize: £100

3rd Prize: £50

But it doesn’t end there, my fine writing friends, oh no, not by a LONG shot.

You Will Be Published

All winners and short listed entries will be published in the To Hull & Back Short Story Anthology. This will be available as a professionally published, printed book and as a Kindle download. I'm planning for both formats to have an ISBN number.

If you’re published in the book, a writer’s profile will appear alongside your story and on my website. This will consist of a delightful picture of you (probably on the website only due to printing limitations, but pictures will be in the book if possible), a short bio telling readers all about how amazing you are and details of your website, if you have one.

In addition to this, an author interview with the winner will be published alongside their story.

And there’s more…

You Will Win the Most Awesomely Awesome in its Awesomeness Writing Prize in the Known Macrocosm

This is the bit that will send tingles down your spine. Joy will ravage your very being and you will feel compelled to dance naked for no reason, no matter where you might be. I guarantee it.

The winner will be taken to Hell Hull and back.

Allow me to explain.

The winner’s face will appear on the front cover of the To Hull & Back Anthology. They will be depicted riding a flaming motorcycle and holding a quill of wrath (see the picture at the top of the page emblazoned with my beauteous bonce as an example of what to expect).

Q&A

How can I learn to speak, read, and write Latin in Dallas, TX?

Hello community, I've recently come upon the beauty of the Latin language and its monumental impact throughout history. I've been trying to read some Latin-to-English side-by-side translations to get a grip on vocabulary, but I'd like to take some courses or procure some instructional books, mainly to learn with a group of people and be instructed on grammar. The only problem is, there are very few places around the metroplex (at least that I've found in my searches) that offer Latin classes.
Can someone please give me some guidance?
Thank you.

The Latinstudy group is the best way to study if you don't have a class to go to, or a teacher.
It's free, a bunch of people learning together, but you will want to borrow or buy the textbook.
