Ah, summertime! The long, cheerful, idle days of curling up in a hammock with a good book, and doing, as Calvin puts it, nothing. Well, this summer, we bring you a chance to exercise your creative cells with our Summer creative writing competition, Sweet Summer Sweat. The best entries will be published in Meander, the ELS magazine. The last date for submitting your entries is 30th July 2015. You can mail us your entries at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winners will also be awarded books as prizes. So, grab something chilled, find a shady spot and bash out some entries, for as John Green notes, your responsibility is to the gift itself.
