We are open for submissions to our 3rd annual short story competition.   This year we are not setting a theme, we just want to be blown away by some new writing – the winner will receive £50 prize money, plus any 2 books of their choice from our full list.

A few things to note before you send us your entries…

Stories must be no longer than 2,500 words.

The closing date is 31st August 2019

If your story has been published elsewhere, make sure you have full permission to re-publish it, as we’ll be posting the winning entry on our website.

There are no geographical or age restrictions – it’s open to everyone, but please remember that the majority of entries will be from adults and the standard is usually pretty high.

Please email your entries to:, or you can post it to us if you’re old school like that. 

The winner will be announced on 1st November 2019
