Dear Anne,

thank you for your invitation!


"100 words and any topic" is great,

but: you don't mention what language? is it only English?

and also:

where are we supposed to send it to?

Thanks in advance

Katia

The stories will be in English, at least in this contest. I hope we can make more contests on different languages in the future!

Hi Anne,

Can I assume that the language for this short story contest would be English?

I think it is a brilliant idea and I hope that you soon follow it up with translation contests for students/aspiring translators!!

Kind regards

Valosh


Hi Valosh - yep the language is English
Don't worry, we have great ideas about translation contests !

Still hoping to read more!
