My market for you this week is a very special one – it’s the launch of my first short story competition! Over the years I’ve entered lots of writing competitions and been fortunate enough to win some. There’s no feeling quite like it so I thought I’d give someone the opportunity to enjoy that special moment when they find out their story has been chosen as the winning entry. Please share this and tell everyone about it!
I’m planning to launch a range of competitions. Here are the details of the first one:
Flash Fiction Competition
Prizes: 1st £50, 2nd £25, 3rd £10
Entry fee: £2 per story
Word Limit: Stories of up to 250 words are invited on any theme.
Payment can be made by credit card or Paypal, via the website. Cheques should be made payable to Esther Newton.

For postal entries, please include a cover sheet with the following information: your name, contact details, story title and word count. If you want your story back, please enclose an S.A.E.
The title does not form part of the word count.
