A Small Good Thing Short Story Competition
Writing4all.ie have announced a new short story contest. A Small, Good Thing Short Story Competition is a monthly short story competition that accepts (via email or post) short stories of up to 3000 words max. Entry is €3 (€5 for two stories). The prize is €100 and publication in the Writing4all: Best of 2012 anthology.
The competition has been set up in response to the long waiting times that writers suffer when submitting work to journals and competitions. Winners are announced mid-month, so unsuccessful authors don’t have to wait too long until they can submit elsewhere.
The competition opens on May 1, 2012, with the May winner announced in mid-June.
Here's the deal in bullet-form:
• A monthly competition for short stories (3000 words max).
• Entry: €3 to enter one story, €5 to enter two stories.
• Prize: €100; winning stories published in the Writing4all: Best of 2012 Anthology.
