Deadline: February 12, 2022
For published and aspiring writers alike – enter our free annual short story competition and be in with a chance of winning a place on one of Arvon’s residential writing courses, as well as seeing your story published on our site.
To enter, all you have to do is submit a short story (for adults) of no more than 2,000 words. And that’s it. There’s no theme for you to base your story on; all you have to do is make sure you’re registered with the website, click on the ‘Enter now’ button and complete our online competition form. You can attach your entry, which can be in either txt, pdf, doc, or docx format, as well as your contact details and a little bit of information about yourself and your writing experience, if you’d like, in the ‘Covering letter’ field.
The winner of the competition – along with two runners-up – will be announced on the blog pages of this site in March 2022.
This year’s judge
Alysoun Owen, Editor of the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook and the Children’s Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook
