One thousand nights and two

Over at the Centre for Narrative Leadership they are running a story writing competition supported by Vala Publishers and the National Centre for the Oral Tradition – Open to all comers – Closing date 31st Oct 2011 – First Prize £500 and the chance to have your story told at a Gala Storytelling Performance on 11th February 2012.

All you have to do is complete a Calvino fragment of a story:

This necklace has seven white pearls and one black pearl. Now I will break its string and drop the pearls into an onyx cup. He who draws, by lot, the black pearl must kill the Caliph Harun al-Rashid and bring me his head

See here for the complete fragment and all the rules and conditions. Good luck.
