Here's a competition that could win you £1,000, publication and a trip to be presented with your prize at a party. To enter you need to be female, from the UK and unpublished 'in a literary sense'. Apparently short stories, poetry and self published works aren't literary. Not sure if men are excluded for being too literary, or not literary enough.
(It's just been pointed out to me the closing date is 6th May. I was aware of that - I just hadn't realised we'd got to May already! I still hadn't got used to it being April.)
When I find a men only writing competition I'll post the details. Can't say I've ever seen one - have you?
Here's something else you don't see every day.
