#FF Prompt #Project Gutenberg

C66X8TmU4AEbbiS.jpg small

The aim of Project Gutenberg is to help people access books that they might not otherwise be able to get hold of.  This can get a bit tricky because of copyright issues, but in some ways it becomes easier, because there are some fantastic books that are now out of copyright which would get lost forever if it weren’t for PG.

To celebrate the wonderful people at PG, we’re going to run prompts on a (fairly) regular basis. So head on over by clicking on the link: try not to get distracted by the 50,000 or so books on the site!  Take a look at the Recent Books section and pick one that you like the look of. The title of your chosen book forms the title and prompt for your story.

Word limit : 500 words (ish)

Deadline for your story : 7th July, 2 pm GMT


As always, either write a piece on your blog and pop a link to it in the comments below, or e-mail us with your piece and we’ll post it for you.
