Exeter Writers Short Story Competition
1st prize – £500
2nd prize – £250
3rd prize – £100
plus an additional £100 prize for a writer living in Devon
Deadline 28 February 2015
Only three weeks left to get your entries in – it’s a great competition with generous prizes. Full details on how to enter can be found here.
I was lucky enough to win this competition last year and off the back of that was invited to join Exeter Writers. I’m finding the regular meetings so useful and informative, with a real range of both established and aspiring writers – novelists, short story writers, screenwriters and poets amongst them.
If you would like to read my story you can find it here – but please don’t feel obliged, I won’t be offended! Although actually, reading past winners is one of the most important things you can do when entering a competition as it gives you a feel for the type of story that might do well. There are some great names among the previous winners and some fantastic stories.
Best of luck if you do enter.
