Competitions 2021

It's been a great year for competitions. It's a great honour to have reached the long-list for  Dorothy Dunnett Society/HWA historical short story, the short-list for Wells Festival and to have been awarded first prize for Erewash Writing Competitions. This story, Something in Common, will be published on their website after 6pm on 20th September 2021. For the other two, I'll have to wait until October to find out if the stories got any further.
So, if any of you are dickering about sending a piece of your writing to one of the hundreds of competitions run by people dedicated to getting those creative juices flowing, pat it on its behind and send it out there. You never know what will tickle the judges' fancy.
