Competition of the Month: Onward Short Story and Poetry Competition

The Onward Short Story & Poetry Competition is aimed at raising funds to restore the endangered Theatre Royal Hyde, an Edwardian gem that dates back to 1910.

Although winning the competition will not sound as good on your writing CV as say the 'Bridport Prize' the winner does get a small prize plus critique and profits go towards saving Theatre Royal Hyde so it is a good cause too.

The competition is looking for stories of up to 1,200 words and poems of up to 40 lines are required on any theme.

Closing: 28.2.11.
Prizes: £50, £30, £20. Plus critiques
Entry Fee: £3 each, £5 for two.

Thanks for the heads up on this, Emma. I like competitions that are organised to raise money for a specific good cause. That way I don't mind so much when my stories sink without trace - at least my entry money went to a good cause!
