For when you'd rather exercise the mind:-


Some people love running marathons for a cause, but others find their strengths elsewhere.  The Third Word Press truly harnesses the power of words, a creative rather than physical exercise, to spread some good.

By collecting 'drabble' - exactly eighty-word pieces of flash fiction - through an online competition, The Third Word Press selects the best to be published in anthologies as a youthwork initiative, to raise funds for the provision of therapeutic activities for the homeless. So, you can get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping out, by only lifting your fingers!

Enter our Great Eighty Flash Fiction Competition -

this is the journey your submission could take:

arrow3

Submit: You submit a piece of flash fiction of exactly 80 words of your own work and send it in via the Submit page.  You can enter as many pieces as you wish; entry is free. If it meets the cut (whether or not you win) it will be published in a mini anthology.  You will be notified (there is no timeframe) by email, if your piece is chosen.

Support:  If your piece is chosen for publication, it will join 99 others in a shortlist.  This shortlist is the basis for  a marginalised young person to gain work experience and practical training  in product development and management, editorial skills, commissioning skills, marketing and external communications - in short, to produce their own publication.

Fund:  After printing, the young peopple will embarkon a marketing strategy of their own design, and this is also your opportuniity to buy a copy of the anthology.  The funds raised will go towards providing therapeutic activities for the homeless, as well as funding the next print run.
