Left Your Heart in Manchester?

Rainy City Stories wants your love. They also want your love stories and poems. In honour of Valentine’s Day, they’re offering a prize for the best Rainy City Love Story received in the next month.

Whether you’re an old romantic or a cynic, you are invited to tell us your tales (real or imagined) of falling in, out, or over love in our city. But don’t restrict yourselves to traditional romances; feel free to make a wide interpretation of “love story”. The winning submission could be about a more abstract kind of love. It could even be an anti-love poem, or a rant against all things loved-up.

The winning piece of writing will be published on the Rainy City Stories website on the eve of Valentine’s Day amid a shower of cupids and lace bows and twinkly-eyed kittens. And the winner will receive a big fat £50 Borders gift voucher.

Entries must be submitted by close of business on Tuesday, February 10. For full details of how to submit your Love Story or any other Rainy City Story, please visit
