Ringwood Publishing is delighted to announce that the Ringwood Short Story competition launched earlier this year has been upgraded to become an annual event. The closing date for the first year of the event is now confirmed as 30th November 2020, with the winner to be announced just before Christmas 2020. The winning entry will be published in full on the Ringwood website in time for Christmas.

All existing entries will be automatically carried over into full consideration

If you are under 30, and Scottish or a resident in Scotland, and fancy yourself as a writer of promise, then please have to courage to submit a short story of a maximum of 3000 words for this new competition.

Full details of the terms and conditions of the competition, and how to submit entries can be found on the separate Short Story competition page of this website,
