Open to members only, the challenge is to write a short story in less than 1500 words, incorporating each of the nine images from the story cubes as shown above.
This year our illustrious adjudicator is Barbara Trevor, to whom we are most grateful. Barbara is a multiple past winner of the trophy herself, so she knows all about the struggle, the passion and the clashing of pens in the quest for literary supremacy.
Deadline for entry is 16th May.
Who will prise the silverware from Mike's grasping hands this year? He already has his tin of brasso at the ready, and promises that by awards night the trophy will be gleaming.
So, let battle commence!
