Ever get the feeling you’re going through a sense of deja vu?
Yes, here we are in another lockdown in the UK, with all the inconveniences and uncertainties that it brings.
But one thing that remains ever constant is our 1500 word short story competition!
Last quarter we received the biggest number of entries since the competition began. We were delighted that our special offer of allowing 4 entries for the price of 3 inspired so many of our writers – both new and regular – to create even more great work. We’re currently reading through all eligible entries and creating the longlist.
And because we love it so much WE WANT TO READ MORE!
Which is why we’ve decided, for yet another quarter, to extend the offer and do it all over again! (deadline 31st January 2021).
This will be the third quarter in a row that we’ve done this, as we continue to strive to be a thoroughly affordable and accesible writing competition. It’s open to any theme or genre, the only limit is the word count of 1500 words (not including the title).
The fee for one or two stories remains the same – £5 for one, £8 for two – but if you pay the fee of £10 you will qualify to enter FOUR stories, instead of the usual three. This equates to just £2.50 per story entered; we know of very few paid competitions which are better value than that!
So go on – take advantage of the offer once more. Enjoy creating your four new stories – you have three months in which to write them.
We look forward to reading them.
