National Short Story Competition

Just a reminder that West Sussex Writers (a lovely bunch) have their first National Short Story Competition closing 31 March. So you still have time to enter a story, or why not enter more than one as the prizes are worth it. Details are here and full guidelines here.

Highlights:

  • Open theme stories of under 3,000 words
  • Final judge is SIMON BRETT
  • 1st Prize = £200, 2nd = £75, 3rd = £50
  • Entry fee £5 per story
  • You can email stories
  • You don't have to live in West Sussex to enter, this is a national competition
This is one competition the Indoor Writer can't enter as she is one of the initial reading panel. 

Why not have a go - you could be the first winner of this new short story prize!
