Short dated

These free to enter competitions close fairly soon ...

This one from Servicescape is for a short story on any theme. The prize is $1,000.

This one offers a kickstart for novelists. The prize is £1,000 to help kickstart your writing, as well as advice and feedback.

Here's another novel writing competition with a £1,000 prize.

The A Story For Daniel competition asks for up to 500 words with a joyful or uplifting theme. The prize is £100.

The Society of Authors are behind this novel writing competition which has a £4,000 prize.

For this one you can enter scary poetry, or a short story. The winner will have their work made into a chapbook and recieve 60 copies, as well as gaining a small cash prize.

I found this tin of soup at the back of the cupboard. I'm sure it'll be fine ...

I remember the days before ‘use buy’ dates were a thing. We relied on our sense of smell, eyesight and spirit of adventure. Not many of us left now. I wonder why?
Thanks for the competition leads. Not enough time to write a novel (should your key word say ‘novel’, not ‘no’?), but I may give A Story for Daniel a shot.

Oh dear, 'no' as a keyword isn't very optimistic, is it? I'll fix that.

Winners are paid good for those contests.
Two and a half years past the expiration? I would probably chuck it...

Two and a half years? Somehow when it was just the numbers it didn't seem so long.

Thanks for the comp info. I entered A Story for Daniel last time around, but didn't come anywhere. I've had more success with the Senior Travel one that you mentioned on Friday, and I've sent off an entry this time, too. Fingers crossed!

Thanks Patsy, I'll share with my writing group.

@ Julia – well done with your previous success and good luck with this entry.

@ Maria – I hope some of them enter – and you too?
