There’s still time to enter this year’s Evesham Festival of Words Short Story competition, for which the prizes are £200, £100 and £75 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively.
The closing date is 5pm on 5th March 2022, so that still gives you four weeks from today (4th February 2022) to come up with a story of no more than 2,500 words. The entry fee is £5.
After that date, no further entries will be accepted and the readers, Jan Dawson and Gillian Proops, will set to work, whittling all the entries down to the final 15, from which I shall judge the winner.
