I have a lot of authors and writers following my blog (my grammar and spelling must drive them nuts) but I thought this might be useful if you are planning on entering this at all
Reader’s Digest are holding their annual short story competition for the eighth year. There are lots of good things about it.
It’s free to enter
Short stories have to be exactly 100 words – that’s a really interesting challenge
There are three categories—one for adults and two categories for schools: one for children aged 12–18 and one for children under 12
But I think I should flag up this sentence in the rules.
Contributions become world copyright of Readers’ Digest.
As far as I can see, that sentence doesn’t apply just to winning contributions, but all entries. I’ve asked for clarification on their website but haven’t heard back. I decided to post anyway as time is running out: the deadline is 5pm on February 19th.
So, you decide…apart from that it’s a great competition, open to residents of the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland.
