A few competitions that I have come across...

Publishers 'Mardibooks' are looking for stories from people who are interested in writing young adult fiction. They are offering up to 30 members of ideastap a chance to have their work published. This window of opportunity closes on Monday 3 March 2014 at 5pm . So if you aren't in you 'll never know. Therefore now might just be the time to get writing.

Another very exciting short story competition albeit for Irish writers only (Irish being anywhere in the 32 counties of Ireland) is the Davy Byrnes Short Story award 2014  see below link.
