A Writer On Writing: Erewash Short Story Competition

Sally Jenkins brings news pf a short story competition which will raise money for charities.

The Short Story Competition that Erewash Writers’ Group is running – and it has a charity element.

The competition has an open theme. All ages are eligible and it closes on 27th June 2012. There is a maximum word count of 1,500.

The prizes are £60, £30, £15 and there is also a £25 donation (likely to increase if a good response to this competition is received) available to either a UK charity or voluntary group. Entrants can nominate their favourite charity or voluntary group with every entry. Names will be put into a hat and one drawn at the close of the competition. Full details about this charitable donation are here.

The entry fee is £3 but additional entries by the same person attract a discount.

The competition judge is Keith ‘Carrot Nappers’ Large. His humorous fantasy ‘The Tisbech Terror’ won first prize in Freelance Market News’s 2010 short story competition, along with a piece of reverse creativity, adapting his stage play ‘Whine Fever’ into a short story to win the 2011 PCS/Words national competition. You can read his biography on the competition website.
