The Club encourages and inspires children at schools, home-schools, and after-school programs to learn about the great authors; emulate their examples by composing their own written works; build confidence in the writing process in different genres; develop as lifetime scholars who are self-motivated to read, write, and enrich their families and communities.

Art, poetry, and short stories. If you go to school in the South Dublin area, check this out and tell your teacher about it! Have you read a great book by an Irish author recently? Tell us about it!

Part of the Inkwell Group. The vast majority of these competitions are international and will accept entries from writers residing anywhere in the world. The countries are just listed for information. James W Chris, I thought you might be interested in adding the Poetic Republic short story competition to your very useful list of competitions on your website. It works a bit like Scribble, with the readers of the competition reading and scoring other entrants' stories.

You also receive comments from readers on your stories.

Primary English Creative Writing (Composition)

I entered last year the first year they ran a short story competition and had about 20 different comments back. It's well worth taking part, though you do have to commit to reading quite a lot of stories in order to enter. Chris Fielden James, thanks very much for letting me know about this.

I am wondering if you can recommend any please? The story is set in but I am not really looking for something specifically Science Fiction, just one that will take stories of 2, words without being too specific about criteria. It has a 3, word limit, so fine for your story. Chris G Chris, I really appreciate your help.

    I live in South Africa and there are a number of these competitions I'd like to enter. Am I allowed to enter a competition in Scotland, for example, if I don't live there? Kind regards, Lani. Chris Fielden Lani, you will have to check the submission rules for each competition, but the majority of short story contests accept entries from writers living anywhere in the world Lani N Hi there, awesome, thank you for letting me know. I appreciate it.

    Children’s Book Week 2016: Story Writing Competition!

    Simon H Hi Chris, I love your web site - thought you may like to know Askance Publishing are back with a short story competition after a year off. Ashley W Hi! Thanks for your very valuable resource here! I have a question about entering short story competitions. Should I enter my stories in one competition at a time?

    Or is it OK to submit the same short story to multiple contests? I am a little concerned that if I win in one then it becomes a published story and that means if it also wins in another then it is actually no longer eligible. Chris Fielden Ashley, there are some competitions that welcome simultaneous submissions, and some that accept previously published work too. So with those, it's fine to submit elsewhere.

    It's also highly unlikely that you'll win two competitions, even if you're some sort of literary genius as competition judges and magazine editors' tastes and requirements vary so much. If you did have a story accepted whilst it was under consideration elsewhere, you would simply have to withdraw it. You'd probably lose any submission fee and run the risk of being blacklisted for that particular competition, if they specifically requested previously unpublished work that was not under consideration elsewhere.

    But the likelihood of that happening is slim. I do submit simultaneously as it results in more publishing success far more quickly.

    But I think very carefully about where I simultaneously submit. For example, I do not do this with prestigious competitions and publications that I submit to every year as it's not worth the risk of potentially being blacklisted if Fate were to work His magic Can you recommend a good crime short story competition? Not sure which to enter from your website. Chris Fielden James, the Bloody Scotland competition is the only one I'm aware of that is currently running and just about crime.

    It's featured in the lists above. Sara P Thank you very much for all this information! I'd like to ask if you know about any Spanish speaking competitions based in England. Thanks a lot!

    Chris Fielden Sara, I'm afraid not. The only competition I'm aware of that asks for entries in Spanish or English is based in South America. It's called the Southern Pacific Review and is featured in the lists above. Sara P Christopher, thank you very much for your information. I'll have a look at the competition you mentioned. Have a lovely day! Ashley W Hi Chris! They have a panel of judges which they rotate. Thanks for your advice in answer to my previous mail in March, your site is truly very useful. I haven't won a comp yet, but hope springs eternal.

    I got a mail from Chaptercheckers regarding them going monthly rather than weekly and apologising for their slow feedback. Glacial might be more apt. Let's hope they get their act together. Congratulations on all the short-listings. And have updated Needle in the Hay info too. I recently heard from Chapter Checkers and they said they were overwhelmed with entries so had to go monthly. Must be a nightmare to keep up with comms. I find it hard enough with my yearly comp!

    Writers' & Artists' Short Story Competition

    Frank WM Hey Mr. Fielden, I'm somebody who writes and submits short-stories, and I have used your lists many times. Thanks to your meticulous index, I've discovered so many journals that I otherwise would never have known about!
