Exeter Writers are once again inviting you to enter our annual Short Story Competition. The first prize is £500, second £250, third £100, plus there is an extra £100 prize for the best story sent in by a writer living in Devon.
The word limit is up to 3,000 words and the closing date is March 31st 2014. Stories can be in any genre except children’s.
The full rules and a downloadable entry form can be found on our website at www.exeterwriters.org.uk or you can obtain an entry form by writing to: Competition, 202 Manstone Avenue, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 9TL (please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope).
This year, for the first time, you can send your story by email, but you MUST go to the website for details of format and payment.
Please read all the rules very carefully and stick to them. Every year a handful of entrants send faulty entries which are disqualified. This is heartbreaking and can easily be avoided by taking a little care.
Good luck and best wishes,
Jan Cascarini (for Exeter Writers)
