Our quarterly short story competition is going from strength to strength, and when our most recent one closed at midnight a couple of days ago we had more entries than we’ve ever received since the competition first opened earlier this year.
We’re delighted that the competition has proved so popular with writers around the world – this quarter has seen entries from writers as far afield as India and Australia, amongst other places – and the judges can’t wait to start reading them and whittling down to the long and short lists.
Don’t forget, the competition is open all year round – you can find all the details, including deadline dates, on our short story page. If you’re a writer, why not have a go at winning the top prize of £150 (or two other placed prizes), as well as publication here on our website and in possible future anthologies. (And if you’re not a writer, but you know others who are, pass this on!) You can also read previous winning entries on our dedicated page.
If you are entering, make sure you thoroughly read and abide by all our rules of entry. Even if you’ve entered our competition before, make sure you go back and familiarise yourself with them, as the rules have recently been revised and updated.
Good luck – we can’t wait to read your story!
