The Asham Award is for unpublished women writers and for the first time in its 14 year history, the short story competition has a theme. Entrants are invited to write a ghost story (which can be set in the past or the present) or let their imaginations run really wild, and go Gothic. Judges are Sarah Waters (The Little Stranger), Lennie Goodings (Virago) and Polly Samson.
Decent prize money - £1000.
Deadline September 30th (so that's summer sorted...writing, re-writing, sharpening of pencils)
and maximum 4000 words - an opportunity for ideas to float free and haunt your narrative drives...
