Although I have absolutely nothing against receiving a big fat cheque I do like competitions which offer unusual prizes. Perhaps that's partly because I've done OK in a couple of those (My first ever writing success netted me tea with the mayor along with a book token)
Is there anything you'd particularly like to win, or is cash more appealing? Please do let me know if you come across any competitions with weird prizes (or more normal ones)
This poetry competition has great prizes - an Arvon course for the winner and book tokens for 2nd and 3rd.
Talking of different, Cafelit are actively looking for submissions and they accept a wide range of stories. If you have something quirky that you're not sure what to do with you might want to give them a try.
