A reminder about the Dorset Fiction Award’s bi-annual short story competition! They’re looking for short stories, fewer than one thousand words in any genre and topic.
They want to help the great art of writing thrive, and welcome entries by anyone from anywhere. The winner will receive a £500 cash prize, and will be featured in their yearly anthology and on their website along with the next nine runner ups.
So if you are a fanatic writer, or perhaps have lying dormant within you the creative flare to produce something brilliant — then enter. So why not pop by and have a look at their full details page for all the information.
This turn, they are supporting First Story, as chosen by their previous winner Marie Gethins. First Story is a national charity who are dedicated to reducing gaps in literacy and attainment through creative writing.
