Commission a short story

This promise simply has to be a red hot favourite! I'd suggest that it would be the most original and thrilling present for someone. Especially that someone who is normally just a little hard to buy for...

Dawn Lowe-Watson is an award winning writer. She has published three novels and her plays have frequently featured on Radio Four. The most recent, Fog and Shifting Pebbles, was broadcast on the 22nd August. Well known actors such as Geoffrey Palmer and Helena Bonham-Carter have starred in them.

The fantastic promise is a short story (up to 3,000 words) using the winner's name. It could be romantic, philosophic, spooky or exciting - it's your choice. Dawn would just need to know the name and date of birth, to help inspiration.

It would make a wonderful and very personal gift...

...but on the other hand no one would blame you if wou wanted to have it written about yourself!
