Last Call for entries! Stories Space “Darkness and Light” Story Competition

7 February 2013

Darkness and light… one cannot exist without the other.

Competition Theme

Two ageless companions that have been complementing each other since the dawn of time. Most of us yearn for a life filled with light, but often forget that without the dark we cannot gaze up at the stars, for only out of the darkness can light be born. Our imaginations are as limitless as darkness and light, so allow it to carry you to places you have never explored before; we would be delighted to take the journey with you. Stories must centre around the theme “Darkness and Light”. There is no limit to the amount of entries you may submit into the competition.
