Only ten days left

With the entry deadline fast approaching, you only have ten days left to enter the flash fiction competition. Here is the link for the Flash Fiction page.

New Competition

Those of you with longer fiction sitting on your hard drive gathering virtual dust will be pleased to know we will be running an annual competition for stories up to 3,000 words. This category will open for entries on September 1st, so you have plenty of time to polish old stories and write some new ones.

The prize money will be £500, £200 and £100.

Entries will cost:
£7 for one
£12 for two
£16 for three
£20 for four

More information and the entry page will appear on the site closer to the opening date for entries.

Novel Competition

This category opened for entries on May 1st: Novel Opening and Synopsis Competition.  

The judges this year are (once again) the senior editors at Crooked Cat Publishing, who are the publishers for my own D.I. Paolo Storey series of crime novels written as Frances di Plino: Bad Moon Rising, Someday Never Comes, Call it Pretending and Looking for a Reason
 
Crooked Cat Publishing cover a wide range of genres, from chick lit to horror, which is why they are the ideal judges for the competition.  

Full details can be found on the Flash 500 Home Page.
 
Good luck with all your writing endeavours.

Kind regards, 

Lorraine
