Got a UK address? The Verb

The Verb on BBC Radio 3 is marking Radio 3's Composers of the Year celebrations by inviting (UK) listeners to send a short story of no more than 1000 words which use the names of all four composers- Mendelssohn, Haydn, Purcell and Handel in the most inventive, imaginative and cunning ways possible, from a detective called Mendelssohn to an intergalactic starship called the USS Handel. Sounds like a challenge.

Deadline: May 11th.
Judges: Ian McMillan and Rob Cowan, presenter of Radio 3’s Breakfast will judge a shortlist of entries. (Who'll judge the longlist?)

The winning story will be read out on The Verb on 29th May. See here for details.

YOu can listen to the program for a week online.
