Sunderland Short Story Award

A fantastic short story competition has opened up in my home city Sunderland – the Sunderland Short Story Award.

The award is a collaboration between the University of Sunderland and Waterstones and awards £500 to the winner. The competition will be judged by Professor Ailsa Cox of Edge Hill University, the world’s first professor in Short Fiction.

Not from Sunderland? No problem, the contest is open for writers from all over the globe. Entry fee is £5, word limit is 2,500 and entries are welcomed until 1 March 2018. For the younger category (11-17 years old) entry is free and the word limit is 1,500.
