The Nottingham Writers' Club national competition (which I'm judging) is now open. The competition aims to encourage less experienced writers, so the rules state 'please don't enter if you've earned £300 or more from short story writing during 2015'. The theme is fire. Handily I have a book cover I can use to illustrate that ...
This one isn't free, but you will get a few lines of feedback from the first readers on every entry, which I think is easily worth £5. Winners also get feedback from me. Plus there are cash prizes and publication of the top three.
Talking of winning ... you may remember I was one of two winners in the Soundworks competition. My story has now been recorded. Click on Uncle Mick to listen to it (if you like - there won't be a test or anything).
Soundworks are running another free competition. You have until the end of April to send in your entries.
