Event Details

Do you have a short story or the first chapter of a novel that has a dystopian theme? If so, we want to hear from you!

Pro Publisher is pleased to announce a brand new dystopian fiction competition designed for writers looking to take their creative output to the next level. Might that be you?

All you need do to enter the competition is submit your short story or first chapter of a novel, along with your contact details. You may submit up to three entries. Entry is free and there are three great prizes up for grabs, all designed to help new and existing authors improve the quality of their work and increase their self-publishing know-how.

Your story must be set in a dystopian society – think Orwell’s 1984 or Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

The work must be your own. Stories published within the past 18 months are acceptable, but there must be no copyright issues.

The winner receives a choice of Pro Publisher writing courses plus a self-publishing course. The winning entry will also be turned into a EPUB, complete with custom cover, ready for uploading to Amazon, etc.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
