Harper's Bazaar short-story competition 2018






Fiction has long been the life blood of Bazaar. Thomas Hardy, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, Margaret Atwood and Ali Smith are just a handful of names that make up our glittering roster of past contributors. For the chance to follow in their footsteps, enter our annual short-story competition by submitting 2,500 words on the subject of ‘The Looking Glass’. The winner will receive a two-night stay and a three course dinner for two in Amberley Castle, an inspiring 900-year-old retreat in rural Sussex and the chance to see their work published in Harper’s Bazaar.

Terms and conditions: the competition is open to individuals aged 18 and over, published or unpublished. To enter, send an original, unpublished short story, written in English on the subject of 'The Looking Glass', of up to 2,500 words to shortstory@harpersbazaar.co.uk. The competition closes at midnight on 9 April 2018. Stories received after the closing date will not be considered. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges and will be based on literary merit, originality and readability. Entrants will be deemed to have accepted these terms and to have agreed to be bound by them. The winner will receive a selection of gifts from Smythson and a two-night stay in a Classic Room for two at Amberley Castle Hotel. The prize is valid for an overnight stay Sunday to Friday inclusive (not Saturday). It includes breakfast on both days and three course dinner on one night. All additional food and beverages will be charged as extra, payable direct to the hotel on departure. The prize is subject to availability and must be taken by 31 October 2018. There is no cash alternative and the prize is non-transferable and cannot be extended. It does not include travel to and from the hotel.
