Predictable plots and formulaic writing abound in a world that is more interested in making money than telling interesting and original tales. Undo Redo Entertainment believes that the world is being robbed of great stories which is why they are proud to inaugurate the Lost In Words Short Fiction Competition 2022. They are working hard to discover original works and ideas that have been lost in the cacophony of corporate banality. For this reason, they are calling on all writers of short fiction to submit their entries.
