I’ve had my job made easy for me again thanks to Sacha Black. She really has been wonderful in sending through details of competitions. Last week’s market had a very short deadline so you’ll be pleased to know this week’s is over three months away. ‘The Writers’ Village‘ is holding a short story competition with a closing date of 30th June 2015.
Entries of up to 3000 words are accepted from all around the world. And there’s some great news – publication in a blog, website etc. doesn’t exclude a story from being entered into the competition, unlike many. Nonetheless, if the story has appeared in print form it can’t be entered.
£1000 is awarded to the best story, with £500 going to second place and £250 to the third placed story. There are five short listed stories which will win £50 each.
The entry fee is quite steep at £15 an entry, but it does include feedback.
