I was delighted to learn that Andrew Campell-Kearnsey's story ‘Shrinking Violet’ has just won £25 in the Spinetinglers competition.
Andrew was a member of my TOWARDS PUBLICATION autumn class held at the Friends Centre in Brighton.
Andrew is also a founder member of a relatively new organisation set up to support and promote writers. Called Brighton Community of Writers (Brighton COW for short), it runs a series of competitions. I've given details below but you can find out more by clicking on the title of this post.
BRIGHTON COW will run four short story competitions in 2011. The deadlines will be the end of February, May, August and November.
Theme and Word limit: Any subject. 3,000 words
Prizes: top three winning writers will receive £100, £50 and £25. There will also be the opportunity for the stories to be published on the BRIGHTON COW website as well as being recorded for broadcast on Brighton’s Coastway Hospital Radio, which provides music and entertainment to a network of Brighton hospitals.
Entry fee: £4
