Many of you will already be aware of Alfie Dog Fiction. They are one of the biggest short story download sites on the internet and they have just announced their first short story competition.
First prize is £200 and publication of a 35 – 40,000 word short story collection (e-book and paperback).
Second prize is a critique of short stories up to a total of 10,000 words.
The entry fee is rather unusual. It is the download of five paid short stories by different authors. Prices for stories start at 39p so you may be able to get five stories for £2.00.
In my opinion £2.00 to enter a competition with a £200 prize and book publication is very good value (plus you get the stories as well!).
Stories must be between 1,000 and 2,000 words and in any genre normally carried by Alfie Dog (which gives you a lot of scope).
The closing date is 30th September 2014 – so plenty of time to get you’re thinking caps on!
