Women’s Short Story Competition 2016
It’s that time of year again when our Women’s Short Story Competition is open for business! As always, the 2016 competition welcomes writers of all levels of experience, writing stories on any subject – in any style. Up for grabs is a sumptuous £2,000 first prize, publication in the June 2016 issue of Mslexia and the fantastic exposure that this competition gives its finalists. So if you’ve got a story – or an idea – that could fit into our 2,200 word limit, we’d love to see your work.
1st prize: £2,000
Plus two optional extras: a week’s writing retreat at Anam Cara, and a day with an editor at Virago Press.
2nd prize is £500, 3rd prize £250. Three other finalists will each receive £100. All six winning stories will be published in the June issue of Mslexia.
Entry fee: £10 per story
Judge: Michèle Roberts
Please read the competition rules below before entering. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0191 204 8860.
‘It was Debbie Taylor and when she said I’d won I couldn’t quite get my head around it. Honestly, afterwards I thought I’d dreamt the whole thing.’
