I hope this is the right place to post this. I just happened to read about it from something someone posted on my FB feed.
I think this is a special opportunity for the right person.

Do you know if this is just for UK residents? The contest entry rules seem to indicate that as much is true, which would make me ineligible, but still just wanted to see if you knew. Either way, thank you so much for posting this!

Yes. Makes me ineligible too. I'm such a fan of SK (his imagination and great characters) that I think it's a once in a lifetime to anyone who can do it.
And you're welcome. Too good not to share.

Rule #1 would be clearer if it said (my addition in bold): The Stephen King – The Bazaar of Bad Dreams writing competition (the “Competition”) is open only to UK residents aged 18 and over.

But yeah, even without the additional clarification, since the contest is sponsored by King's UK publisher, it makes sense that it's limited to UK residents. Good luck to anyone who decides to give it a go!
