2015 National Short Story Competition Details
As our first National Short Story Competition proved popular, (see comments) - we've decided to run another. The entry details are the same but the theme is different. This time it's water which can take any form from the smallest drop to a huge ocean, from arctic ice to a long, hot bath, from something you drink to something you sail on, swim in, stand under, etc.
The prizes this year will be £200, £100 and £50 with five runners up prizes.
Our judge is Leigh Russell
It's very easy to enter. Stories must be no longer than 2,000 words but can be in any genre you choose as long as water plays a major part in the plot.
The competition opens on 1st January 2015 and closes on 31st January 2015.
The entry fee is £5 per story unless you send three or more then it's £4 per story.
As per last year, all entries will receive a few lines of feedback and one of our members, Keith, who is a successful, published short story writer, will read all entries to see if they're suitable for submitting to magazines. He will also explain how to submit work, where to find magazine guidelines, which magazine he thinks your story is suitable for, etc.
As this competition is primarily for new and less experienced writers, if you've earned more than £300 for short story writing during 2014 please don't take part.
To download the entry details, please complete this form. If you have any questions, please use the contact form. Good luck.
