Enter The Bare Fiction Prize 2017

Almunecar cr Judy Darley

The excellent folks at Bare Fiction are inviting submission to their creative writing awards. This year Wayne Holloway-Smith judges the Poetry category (max 40 lines), Naomi Booth judges the Flash Fiction category (max 500 words), and Adam O’Riordan judges the Short Story category (max 3,000 words).

First, second and third prize winners in each category will receive £500, £200 and £100 respectively, plus two highly commended entrants will receive £25 each.

Fee per entry is £5 for poetry, £6 for flash fiction, and £8 for fiction, with a £2 entry discount for magazine subscribers.

There’s no theme, but bear in mind that the British periodical aims to “offer a platform for new creative writing across poetry, fiction and plays to encourage writers who are testing their boundaries to stretch themselves creatively.”

The deadline for all entries is 31 October 2017. Find full competition details here.
