The mags4Dorset 10th annual creative writing competition wants short stories up to 1,000 words on the theme: A Plastic Nightmare.
First prize is £300 and second prize is £100. Entry is £5 and the closing date is 30th October 2018.
If over 100 short stories are received, mags4dorset will donate £100 to the registered charity, Surfers Against Sewage.
Don’t forget to read all the rules before you start writing. One rule which I’ve never seen in a competition before is ‘Do not use famous people’s names or brands’.
