Event Details

Due to Covid 19 and it’s affects on the world, there has been a distinct lack of adventure and travel throughout 2020. With frustrated populations forced to lockdown and stay in our homes, many of us have day dreamed about taking a trip somewhere.


It’s time to put those imaginings on paper and enter them in the Travel Short Story competition hosted by The Wit To Woo.

The interpretation of the word Travel is completely down to you. It can be another world, another time, about people or about creatures. As long as the reader is taken on a journey. You can draw from your own personal experience, or craft a tale completely using your imagination. It’s time to get the world moving again with words.

As with all our contests, if we have a high number of entries the prize purse is enhanced. 5000 word max, and deadline for submissions on the 30th of November. Winners notified no later than the 14th of January 2021.
