Liberties Press, in conjunction with Irish Pensions & Finance, are delighted to announce the launch of their Humorous Short Story Competition for 2020.
We’re looking for your funniest original story, real or imagined, from Graham Norton’s red chair to Waiting for Godot - and all points in between. We don’t mind how irreverent or inappropriate you are but there are other rules:
You must be over 16 years of age
You must be an Irish citizen or long-term resident of Ireland
The closing date for submissions is 31st August 2020
Maximum 1500 words per entry
One entry per person
The judges' decision is final
Entry is FREE, so whether you are a published writer who wants to demonstrate their range, an unpublished writer who wants to prove they’re every bit as good as a published one, or simply a chancer looking to make a few bob..…send in that story and give us a laugh; we could do with it.
Entries will be judged by Irish comedian Kevin Gildea and the top ten stories will be published in an Anthology, to be launched early 2021.
Please don’t use real people’s names or copy their stories as they’re liable to get shirty; litigious even.
Entry Form Here
Max file size: 50MB - Please do not include your name on file as entries will be judged anonymously
