The Lit Bits Weekend Challenge #1 Winners

Between the 13th and 16th of December we ran the first instalment of our Lit Bits Weekend Challenge, where we challenged writers to produce a 1000-word story with the title, ‘Forgotten’. We were blown away by the response and would like to thank everyone who entered. After lots of deliberation and coffee, our judges have chosen the three winners (in no particular order):

John Ward for his inventive story on the fickleness of celebrity.

Saxon Pepperdine for an entertaining story about a father’s death.

Amanda Mason for her intriguing story about distorted childhood memories.

Congratulations to our winners, who will all be published in a competition anthology and receive a cash prize of £80/$80.

There were many quality stories and choosing three winners was difficult. Narrowly missing out were two honourable mentions:

Yasmin Kahn for her unique story about a flower thief.

Christina L. Rozelle for her touching story about a grandmother with Alzheimer’s.

Also, a special shout out to  11-year-old, Asia, for a very impressive story.


This weekend we challenge you to write a 1000-word story with the title:

‘The Lie’
