it’s yr life IM / Email Writing Competition

You’re invited to write a micro-story based on the writing process Tempany Deckert and I used on our email-written book, IT’S YR LIFE. We’d love you to write a story as a series of emails or IMs between two characters. You have to tell your story in just eight messages (four from each character) of three or four lines each message. You can either write it by yourself or with a writing partner. Full deets are at

It’s open to any Australian resident under eighteen. The winner will have their entry published over at and two hours of writing advice and feedback from Temp and I.

You can email us the story or you can submit via Myspace.

Good luck! Can’t wait to read what you come up with.
