Winter Short Story Competition

2020/21 competition is now closed. Check back later in the year for details of the next competition.

What are we looking for? Great writing certainly, original stories of course, and also something obvious but that’s not often stated – we were looking for a good read. Like beauty, that can be in the eye of the beholder.

Take a look at some of the stories we’ve liked from previous competitions, there’s some really good writing from all corners of the globe, something we’re really proud of.

Check out the competition details here – and please read the instructions carefully, there is nothing so disheartening as reading a good story only to find that the author has included their name and address on the last page!
