Post Contest to be published alongside J.K. Rowling

Are you an aspiring writer with a great story to tell? Can you fit it on a A5 card? Waterstone's has let us know they are holding a competition for budding writers – of all ages – to win a chance to appear alongside J.K. Rowling's latest Harry Potter prequel, and other famous writers' short stories, by having their tale published in What's Your Story.

Click here for information about the contest.

All entries must be 600 characters or less. There is only one entry per person and all entries must be submitted online by June 19. The three lucky winners will be notified on July 2. Full rules can be found at the contest link above by clicking on Terms and Conditions at the bottom of the page.

Winners under the age of 18 will receive a £500 Waterstone's gift certificate; those 18 and over will receive an Arvon Writing Course.

What's Your Story can be preordered now online at Waterstone's here for £5 (about $10 U.S.), and they deliver internationally. All proceeds from the book will go to charity.

--------------------
NOTE: We also have a larger, hi-res image of the last line that Jo wrote on the prequel, which you can view here in our galllery. Thanks to Waterstone's for sending it over!

I would love to enter, because I love writing. But my english isn't perfect, well it's actually a bit poor, so.. Well, good luck to all who enters!

It doesn't say in the rules that you can't. But I've sent your question to Waterstone's just to be sure.

Oooh, this is awesome news! Good luck to all who enter!

I'd be interested to know if you can enter if you live in the States or some other country, as well. (That seems to be the burning question of the moment).

I think most people would rather have the gift voucher than the writing course
