Event Details

History is full of interesting stories about people making it appear as if they’ve “gone to the other side” for various reasons and purposes; from evading conscription in the Roman Army to collecting on life insurance, necessity has long been the mother of invention. We want you to do it better, well, to write it better. Therefore we challenge zesty writers with plenty of life in them to submit. Best fake death account wins!

One entry of up to 1500 words permitted per writer. Entries should be completely original fiction or stories based on historical events.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
