That’s right, there’s only two more full days to go, because the deadline for our Short Story Competition is TOMORROW EVENING! Just a reminder that we will be accepting submissions until 23:59pm on Friday 1st December 2023 – great news for those of you who work best under pressure!

So finish up those final touches and submit! You can find all the terms and conditions, instructions on how to submit, and a list of prizes (including the £100 first prize!) here. And if you’re almost done, but need some guidance or exercises for one last push to the finish line, then we’ve got you covered! Check out some short story exercises here, and some advice from award winning short fiction writer (and judge on this year’s panel), Rob McInroy here.

We can’t wait to read your stories – but hurry – time’s almost up!
