Cinnamon Cup Coffee is delighted to announce that our creative writing contest #SPILLTHEBEANS has been re-vamped.
The first week kicked off with a BANG and was well received. Thank you to everyone who participated.
Please watch this short video to discover the winner of last week's contest:)
It was a tight contest with some amazing entries that really stood out and raised the bar!
Both Leaky and I were blown away by the creativity and effort that was put into the entries, and we thoroughly enjoyed reading them and found them exciting. Thank you!
See this week's topic below, with a countdown timer that needs to be observed for the deadline of entries. The entry deadline for posts ends on Wednesday, with the countdown timer at the top and the bottom of this post, guiding you to the cut-off time.
This is a creative writing exercise, therefore you can weave your story however you like, but it MUST revolve around the topic presented.
Have fun peeps!
