Here’s a nice contrast to the competition I mentioned last week about death and dying.
Brian David from the CheerReader website has asked me to give their quarterly short story competitions a mention – and they want stories that will make the reader laugh.
The theme for each competition is – anything, as long as it’s funny. 100 Euros is the prize on offer for the winner in each of the 4 competitions. The winner plus commended stories will be published on the website.
The maximum word count is 1500 and the entry fee is 5 Euros (payable via PayPal). The closing dates are March 15th 2012, June 15th 2012, September 15 th 2012 and December 15th 2012. Winners will be announced 2 weeks after each closing date.
There are plenty of stories on the website to give you an idea of what goes down well with the organisers. Have a look here.
