Step 1 – Choose Your Entry Fee (All Currencies Are Accepted)
We operate a choose your own entry fee system. The suggested entry fee is £7 per entry (£6 per entry for two, or £5 per entry for three or more), but if that’s prohibitive, just pay what you can afford. If you’d like to support a writer who can’t afford the full fee, why not add a pound or two?
All entries are read blind. The amount you pay to enter the competition will not affect your chances of winning.
