Courses and Competitions: Mslexia Short Story Competition 2015

shortstorycomp15If, like me, an early new year’s resolution is to enter more competitions and to get writing, then Mslexia are once again looking for entrants for their Women’s Short Story competition for 2015.

The closing date is 16th March 2015 so there is still plenty of time to get your entry in.

The stories should be up to 2,200 words in length and can be on any subject you like.

The 1st prize will be £2,000 plus two optional extras: a week’s writing retreat at Tŷ Newydd Writers’ Centre (accommodation only,) and a day with a Virago editor (click on the link further down for more information on what is and isn’t included with these options.)

The 2nd prize will be £500 with 3rd prize being £250. Three other finalists will also each receive £100.

All winning stories will be published in Mslexia magazine.

The Judge will be author, Alison MacLeod.

About Novel Kicks/Laura...

She’s trying to write the novel she thinks so much about. She’s loved reading and writing since ‘Creative Writing’ classes in primary school. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything she can get her hands on, she loves reading, dancing like a loon, and watching Project Runway and Ugly Betty (her two TV guilty pleasures.) She also has an obsession with chocolate and Jammie Dodgers.
