Swansea & District Writers’ Circle inaugural short story competition

To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of WW1, Swansea & District Writers’ Circle have chosen a First World War theme for their inaugural short story competition.

The Competition

Stories of 1500 to 2500 words are welcomed, on any aspect of the First World War. Stories can be written in any style, even fantasy, so long as WW1 is central to the narrative. The closing date is 16 June 2014, which gives plenty of time for writers to get creative.

Entry is open to anyone over the age of 18, wherever they live.

The Prize

The top prize is £100, donated by local electrical contractors DME Engineers, with two runners up prizes of £25. The three winners will also receive book tokens donated by Mumbles bookshop Cover to Cover, and a year’s free membership of the Writers’ Circle.

The best stories will be printed in an anthology, to be published by Accent Press.
