This weekend Kingsford Business Club were delighted to host Jamie Graham, a copywriter at Editions Financial, as he took on the challenge of writing 24 short stories in 24 hours (non-stop!).
Jamie has always had a keen interest in writing and won a BBC Radio Scotland competition as a kid which was acted out on national radio. Since then he has written children’s stories and a novella, as well as competing the 24 hour challenge once before by writing 24 kids stories to raise funds for Bloodwise.
To make the challenge more difficult this time around, Jamie started on Saturday without any ideas and his colleagues supplied prompts pulled out of a hat as the challenge unfolded. Jamie has so far raised over £600 for Worldwide Cancer Research, to find out more take a look at his fundraising page here.
Jamie will also be producing an ebook with all the stories he wrote during his challenge at the Business Club. It will be free for people who’ve donated but will also be sold to the public with all proceeds going to the Worldwide Cancer Research – watch this space!
