Entry Fee | Fiction |
DEADLINE 30th January 2013 Wednesday  
ENTRY FEE £ 10
PRIZE £ 2,500




For this year’s International Short Story Competition we are on the lookout for stories that capture the imagination in a beguiling and original manner. Present us with short stories that are not only wonderfully crafted but give an insight to a sliver of human frailty, a moment highlighted in time, or a traditional tale told with an unusual twist.

The short story medium continues to play a vital role in honing and fine tuning your writing craft. This stand alone form can beautifully illustrate a short piece of writing where every word counts and the action starts from the moment the reader absorbs the first word.

Perhaps your skills lie in weaving descriptions through a mosaic use of language that evokes emotions and reveals insights. Use this opportunity to explore and devour, to clarify and to energize, to go beyond your comfort zone and invent a whole new world.

Entry Fee: £10 per story

Status: Unpublished

Judge: Annette Longman
Chief Editor at Austin & Macauley Publishers Ltd

Word Count: Maximum 2500 words

Deadline: Midnight on Wednesday 30 January 2013

Prizes: £2,500, £1,000 & £500 plus publication

The winners, ten runners up and five highly recommended will be published in Chapter One Promotions anthology.


You can submit and pay online or use the more traditional postal method. Our mailing address is Chapter One Promotions, Canterbury Court, 1-3 Brixton Road, London, SW9 6DE, England. Please ensure that your contact details are placed on a separate sheet. All online submissions will receive an acknowledgment receipt.

Alternatively, you can use our submissions form to send us your story. If you choose to pay your entry fee online, the payment process will lead you directly to the online form.
