Cranked Anvil Short Story Competition

Event Details

The Cranked Anvil uarterly short story competition is open for entries. The competition is open to any theme or genre, but your story must be a maximum of 1,500 words (not including the title).

You can enter up to three stories.

Due to its popularity, we are once again relaxing our rules slightly. If you pay the £10 entry fee, you will get one free entry. That is, you will be able to enter FOUR stories rather than three.

Winning stories will be published online. Future anthologies will also be considered, published by Cranked Anvil Press, in which a selection of short- and long-listed stories from each competition will be published.
