Snapshots of History: Stories from the Past

Quarterly Submission Guidelines

Stories should be between 1,000 and 2,500 words and be set in an earlier age (up to the end of the Second World War). Historical accuracy is important in order to create an authentic setting, however, Snapshots of History is a fictional publication. Subjects such as the supernatural, fantasy, violence and sex can be included, but material should not be too graphic or liable to cause offence in anyway.

Stories should be typed and a cover sheet with the author's name and contact details. Previous publication of a story must be declared on the cover sheet.

Entries should be submitted via email to There is a £3.00 entry fee (for non-subscribers). Hard copies will be accepted into the competition, however an electronic (Word) version will be needed for all stories selected for inclusion.

The deadlines for submissions are as follows:

Spring/Sumer 2013 - now closed
Autumn/Winter 2013
Spring/Summer 2014

The best entries will receive prizes of £25.00 (first place) and £15.00 (second place) and will be printed in the next available edition. Runners up may also be included in the journal. Unfortunately due to limited resources feedback on stories cannot be given. For a subscription form, please email the editor, Sally Bland,
