 Full details 

Great News!!

Shaun Hutson is our VIP judge. Shaun Hutson


We have two new writing competitions - a 'Short Story' one with upto 2,500 words and a 'Flash Fiction' one with upto 1,000 words and Shaun is going to pick the lucky finalists from both. Our planned anthology will also feature one or two of his stories that have never been published.


So enter our competitions for a chance to have your story published next to his.


First will be the Flash Fiction contest, that will begin on the 1st August 2022 and run until 1st January 2023, followed by the 'Short Story' contest. Date to be confirmed.


We know flash fiction has become quite popular. Having to write a complete story in under 1000 words is a challenge in itself but, the results can often be thrilling. 


On the other hand, short stories of around 2,500 words have room for more detail, or to build tension towards that vital twist ending.


Intitially, the cash pot for prizes will be worth £400, (£250, £100 and £50) but that can increase depending on the amount of entries. The more that do enter the higher the prize will be.


Long and short-listed entries from both competitions will be published in our anthology for the world to see their work. Near misses may be published on our site, with the author's permission of course.


We are the new guys in town and this will be our first open competition, so we need your help to spread the word. Link us to your social media and tell everyone about us. We are keen to showcase new talent by promoting their work.


The genres we prefer are on our Competition page but, think scary and unusual, strange and unnerving. You can always add a little humour or mix genres if you like.


Please get in touch and tell us if you're interested in entering, we want to know.


Don't forget to leave us your email.
