NAWG Open Writing Competition

For those who like entering competitions, here’s a good one.

The National Association of Writers’ Groups are holding their first open short story competition. The competition is open to non members and the entry fee is £5.

And if you would like a short critique of your story from judge and successful short story writer, Linda Lewis, this will only be an extra £3.

Prizes are 1st £250, 2nd £100 and 3rd £50. Entries should be between 500 and 2000 words and the all important closing date is October 31st.

Details and entry form can be found here.


  1. This looks interesting. Thank you, Teresa.


  2. Greetings Teresa,
    I wonder if they would dare allow a dog to enter the competition. Me thinks it would be unfair if I entered, because, as you know, us dogs are superior writers to humans! :)
