The long lists are now up for the second quarter of 2014. You can find the titles of the flash fiction long list here and the titles of the humour verse long list here.
I’m delighted to announce that award-winning novelist Louise Phillips will be judging the third quarter of the flash fiction competition.
The humour verse entries for the third quarter will be judged by someone who has been writing funny rhymes for many years and has won hundreds of prizes as a result, Michael Shenton.
Although this competition only closes on 31st October, entries are already coming in. Once again, the judges for this competition will be the senior editors at Crooked Cat Publishing.
Prizes: £500 first prize, plus a runner’s up prize of £200
