Well, here is a great short story competition with a prize and a half:
The Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Competition is now open for entries until July 31st. The annual competition, sponsored by the Munster Literature Centre, is accepting entries (3,000 words or fewer) from around the world.
First prize is €2,000 (ooh!), publication in Southword (ah!), and a week-long residency at Anam Cara Writers’ and Artists’ Retreat (ooh! ah!).
The winner will be invited to attend the Cork International Short Story Festival (16 – 20 September 2014)
“If the winner comes to Cork to collect their prize, we will lavish them with hotel accommodation, meals, drinks and VIP access to the literary stars at the Cork International Short Story Festival.”
Did you hear that? They will lavish you in honour of your mad short story writing skills. Nice.
