Markets For Writers

This week’s market comes courtesy of the wonderful Sacha Black. She’s spotted an excellent competition that’s a must enter. It’s the ‘Stephen King – The Bazaar of Bad Dreams competition’.

The competition is calling for entries for a fiction story of up to 4,000 words. The story must be on a subject inspired by the following line from Stephen King: “There’s something to be said for a shorter, more intense experience. It can be invigorating, sometimes even shocking, like a waltz with a stranger you will never see again, or a kiss in the dark, or a beautiful curio for sale at a street bazaar.”

The closing date for entries is December 18th 2015.

The prize is publication, plus a place on a Guardian weekend Masterclass with Stephen King’s UK editor, Philippa Pride.

To find out more about how to enter, check the terms and conditions page.

    Thanks to both you and Sacha, Esther. This competition certainly looks exciting with Stephen King picking the final winner. It’s probably beyond me. But, I enjoyed the thrill of reading the terms and conditions nevertheless. I had a fantastic time at the Guardian and Observer offices (meet the editor event) several years ago. They do offer some great opportunities for both writers and readers.

    Having a bit of a blogging break well trying to! But couldn’t resist reblogging this opportunity to enter a writing competition. This one sounds pretty darn awesome, with the prompt coming from Stephen King! Competition suggestion via Sacha Black, reblog from Esthernewton’s blog. Closing date for entries December 18th.

  4. Had to reblog this even though I’m meant to be on a blogging break! Sounds awesome Esther, and Sacha. 😉
