Markets For Writers

If ever there was a writing competition you should enter, it’s this one. Esther Newton, is one hell of a writer, and a seriously amazing tutor at the Writers Bureau. She is launching a flash fiction competition, open to any and all genres. Haven’t got time to write a whole story? Fine, that’s no excuse, the word limit is 250 words anyway! Entry is super cheap, and you can add a critique to your submission if you want to – which I strongly recommend, her feedback is second to none. So what are you waiting for? Get writing, I have already written my first entry…

My market for you this week is a very special one – it’s the launch of my first short story competition! Over the years I’ve entered lots of writing competitions and been fortunate enough to win some. There’s no feeling quite like it so I thought I’d give someone the opportunity to enjoy that special moment when they find out their story has been chosen as the winning entry.  Please share this and tell everyone about it!

I’m planning to launch a range of competitions. Here are the details of the first one:

Flash Fiction Competition

Prizes: 1st £50, 2nd £25, 3rd £10

Entry fee: £2 per story

Word Limit: Stories of up to 250 words are invited on any theme.

Payment can be made by credit card or Paypal, via the website. Cheques should be made payable to Esther Newton.

Entries should be submitted as e-mail attachments…
