Event Details

The New Writers 1000-Word Short Story Competition 2024 is open to stories of up to 1,000 words on any theme or subject. It is open to entrants from anywhere in the world and £1 from each entry will be donated to charity.

There is a total of £1,500 available in prizes (£1,000 for first place, £300 for second, £200 for third) and the three winners will be published on the newwriters.org.uk website and in a future anthology. The head judge is the award-winning writer of eight novels, Cassandra Parkin.

We are keen to encourage quality, 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.
