Markets For Writers

You’ll need to get your skates on if you want to take advantage of this week’s market, ‘The Costa Short Story Award‘. The annual competition has a closing date of Friday 1st August 2014 and the entry must be sent by 4pm.

Stories on any theme are invited and there’s a word limit of 4000 words. Only one entry per person is allowed.

It’s well worth an entry with a first prize of £3500! Second place receives £1500 and third place £500.

To get a feel for the type of story likely to win, you can read previous winning entries.

The entry rules are very specific so do take a careful look at the website: https://www.costa.co.uk/costa-book-awards/costa-short-story-award/

The competition is only open to entrants who reside primarily in the UK. If that doesn’t apply to you, take a look at my ‘Markets For Freelancers‘ and ‘More Markets For Freelancers‘ pages as there are some international competitions you can enter.
