Free anthology until 4th May & launch of 2013 Hysteria Short Story Competition


Hysteria Short Story Writing Competition 2013
1st April saw the launch of this years short story writing competition for women only. The
winner of last years competition was Jane Bean with her story ‘Banana Loaf: A recipe for solace; and you can find her story and all the other winners poetry and stories in the new anthology, ‘Hysteria 1. (Including Midsummer's Eve, 1347 penned by the Indoor Writer!)
Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle reader, you don’t actually need one as Amazon offers easy to download apps that allow you to read Kindle books on your computer, laptop, tablet, iPad, iPhone or android phone too.
We’d love as many of our lovely users to get the book as possible, so do click across to Amazon before the deadline and grab your free copy.

Hysteria 2013 is NOW open to entrants. Find out more about what this years writing competition involves and how to get involved by visiting the website updates.

Following feedback last year, we have made the process of entering much easier than last year; simply upload your story (using the story title as the file name) at the same time as you enter the competition. Please don't include any personal details in the story file.

  3. Hi Tracy,

    Have popped over to your site from Sally Jenkin's online home. I am very happy to find out about the free download available - thank you very much.

    Your comment about the KDP experience is of interest to me because I have just added my very first short story to the programme. I am writing a case study about the whole process in order to see what the results are and whether KDP is a viable option.

    I hope you get a chance to take a look at my short story offering.
