Writing competition: A story, told in one sentence on the theme of: coming of age (25/11/2008)Do you have a story to tell? Can you tell it in just one sentence? It can be true or not, only you will know. Make us laugh or cry, empathise with you or be shocked. Can you condense the most interesting part of a story into a bite-sized piece?
2008 is the 21st anniversary of Honno's first book, so we have chosen the theme 'coming of age'. But that can be a moment when you were 10 or when you were 70.
