Home - Romantic Story Competition


We’re running a romantic short story competition as part of our exciting campaign to promote the many charms of Milton Keynes and we’d love you to enter.

We’re looking for short stories of 1,000 words that describe a romantic experience in Milton Keynes.

You’re invited to use your imagination and conjure up a love story set in our town – 
a place where 93% of residents say they love to live.

The only condition is that the story is partly set in one of our famous landmarks.  Perhaps in a restaurant off Midsummer Boulevard, or at the MK Dons Stadium.  Perhaps it’s set somewhere in the hundreds of acres of green space, including lakes and ancient woods, that Milton Keynes has to offer.  Or perhaps it’s love amongst our world-famous concrete cows.  The more specific the story is to Milton Keynes, the better.

The winner will receive a cash prize of £500 and a luxury romantic weekend for two in Milton Keynes.

Entries close on Monday August 2 2010 at 5pm and can be submitted by post or email:
