David Gibson Competition 2015

David Gibson prize 2015:

The Ashley Madison adultery revelations – and the release of email addresses by an HIV clinic in London – have turned the spotlight on breaches of privacy. What secrets are we entitled to keep? How are we threatened if they get into the wrong hands?

Write a story of up to 1,000 words about a breach of privacy and the unforeseen consequences that follow. Conceal your identity with a good pen name and bring your offering to the Night of Judgement by fellow scribes on Wednesday September 30.

NB These stories have to be read quickly on the night, so please use a large-ish font and generous spacing to ease the task.

This is a members' only competition

Entry is free – and exit is still a possibility if your secret is blown…
