UCLan Writers : Forum : Short Story Competition


Short Story Competition

8 Years Ago


Are you a short-story writer looking for expert feedback? Mardibooks are looking for short stories of between 1,200 and 5,000 words from IdeasTap members of all ages. Up to 12 submissions will be selected to receive one-to-one expert feedback from Mardibooks' founders, writers Martin Godleman and Belinda Hunt. Stories selected for feedback will also be considered for entry into a Mardibooks short-story anthology, to be published as an ebook on Amazon at the end of 2013.
 
Successful submissions will be original ideas, well devised, with an interesting story and developed characterization. Stories need to show an interesting use of language and considered and appropriate structural devices, and can be from any genre ¬ e.g. thriller, horror, comedy, romance, historical, fiction/non-fiction ¬ but the tone and construction needs to fit the purpose and the audience.
 
This opportunity closes on 28th May at 5pm. For further information/to apply follow this link
