Just thought I would pass on details about a short story competition that is in 7th year. The judge/anthology editor Kerry has some very interesting tastes and reading about these as well as enjoying the past winners on the website should prove helpful as you prepare your story.
Here is the email she sent out to previous entrants of this competition.
A quick note to say that The Short Story competition 2017 has opened its doors for a 7th year. In brief, 1st prize is £500, 2nd prize is £100 and it’s £8 to enter.
Deadline for stories is September 15th, and winners will be announced in December.
If you’re interested in submitting, please go to the website for more details: www.theshortstory.net.
While I have your ear, feel free to spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, writing websites, your mates, your relatives, your literary colleagues. Or talk to a stranger at the bus stop and let them know. They might thank you.
And I thank you in advance for your support!
All the best
