Charmouth Community Library is pleased to announce its first fun writing competition.

A mini-saga is a piece of writing which has exactly fifty words, not including the title, which can have up to fifteen words. Hyphenated words will be accepted as one word. A mini-saga has to tell a story and have a beginning, middle and end. It cannot just be a description of something. 

Due to the shortness in length, it is important not only to have a really good idea but to choose words very carefully and to spend time on the editing process.
