This year we have three categories to enter:
Short stories – up to 2,000 words
Flash fiction – up to 250 words
Poetry up to 20 lines

We accept entries in any genre except erotica or horror. We are NOT looking for stories, flash fiction or poetry about Hysterectomy. Instead, we are looking for works that appeal to our website visitors, who are mostly women between the ages of 25ish and 65ish.

All entries are to be made via our online shop where you can upload your entry as a .doc, .docx, rtf or txt format. No other file formats will be accepted and entries made using them will be disqualified.

Please make sure you read the guidelines and the rules before submitting your entry.
Entry Fees

Flash Fiction – £3
Poetry – £3

£400 – winning short story
£200 each – winning flash fiction and poem.

9 runners up in each category will be published in the anthology Hysteria 4, due for publication in November 2015 and will receive a free copy of the anthology when it is published.
