Writing Competitions over summer.
There are a couple of writing comps closing in December and January that you might want to consider entering. Here are the links.
Unity Books - The Long And The Short of it - short story competition closes 24th December.
It's an unusual concept and a good one, especially if you've found yourself with the short story that just won't quit. It's hard to find a home for longer (5000 words plus) stories.
AUT competition for unpublished authors closes 31st January.
We went to the prize-giving ceremony for the 2010 competition and it was great to see the placegetters so energized.
Have a go...
