Spread the Word Short Story Feedback #seanocarolan.com #writing #short story #competition #opportunities
As part of Spread the Word's support, celebration and promotion of short story writers we are offering bespoke feedback to 10 short story writers. The feedback will focus on voice, structure and tone. You will also receive advice on the next steps you can take to make your story the very best it can be. Submissions of complete stories (no extracts) of up to 5,000 words are invited.
This is a fantastic opportunity for short story writers to develop their writing skills and knowledge of the short story landscape. It is hoped that brief winners will form a relationship with Spread the Word.
The judges of this brief are looking for unique short stories that show promise in voice, pace, structure, and characterisation. The worlds that are created in the chosen short stories will be unique and compelling.
Spread the Word, London’s writer development organisation, is celebrating short stories this year. They ran the first London Short Story Festival, launched the London Short Story Prize and publish bold short fiction on their publishing imprint Flight Press.
