SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

When the sun goes down…

 

Fleur of England is looking for budding writers to pen up to 500 words with the ‘After Dark’ theme coinciding with their new lingerie collection called After Dark. 

 

To ignite your imagination they have written the first few lines for you…

 

“The moon and stars were the only glimpses of light in the miles of pitch black surrounding the mysterious woman. The darkness never scared her though, for after dark was her time to dazzle…”

 

Email your entry to olivia@fleurofengland.com with the subject ‘After Dark Writing Competition’ by 14th September 2015 at midnight (GMT). The winner will be the lucky recipient of £300 worth of After Dark lingerie.

 

Take a look here for more information and to read the full terms and conditions.

 

Good luck!

Tuesday Talk! (And a little prize draw!)

 

There are always hundreds of EOM (end of month) comps doing the rounds and I just wondered how many of you managed to be organised enough to do them? Every month I tell myself to start entering them in the middle of the month by doing a few each day so I’m not so inundated on the last day, but I never do! So tonight I’ll be settling down as early as I can and ploughing my way through as many as I can. (Vowing to myself that things will be different next month, ha ha!)

 

I tend to be quite organised with my comping routine but the EOM stuff just beats me every time. My main comping time is in the evenings but I do try and sneak some dailies in through the day if I can. I concentrate on staying a few days ahead of the closing dates so I can have an evening off every weekend and I keep a spreadsheet of wins to track prizes.

 

So, how do you organise your comping? I’d love to hear from you and I’d like to post the best tips on our Facebook page to help other compers get their game into gear! So you can either post on our wall  or email me at: info@oxonpress.co.uk. And at the end of the month I’ll choose my favourite to win a little something.

 

Chat soon!
