THRESHOLDS International Short Story Forum Feature Writing Competition
We are now inviting submissions to the 2014 THRESHOLDS International Short Story Forum Feature Writing Competition
1st Prize of £500
2 x Runner-up Prize of £100
02 April 2014, midnight GMT
THRESHOLDS is the only online forum dedicated to the reading, writing and study of the short story form. Entries are welcome in either of the following feature categories:
Author Profile: exploring the life, writings and influence of a single short story writer.
We Recommend: personal recommendations of a collection, anthology, group of short stories or a single short story.
One overall winner will be chosen, followed by two runners-up. The judges hope to see a range of styles and approaches in the feature essays. They will be looking, above all, at the quality of the prose in each feature submitted, the insights offered, and the author’s ability to engage his/her readers. The winning and runner-up essays and shortlist will be published on the THRESHOLDS Forum during 2014.
Previous winning essays:
2013 winner: A Trio of Irish Short Stories by Nuala Ní Chonchúir
2012 winner: H.P. Lovecraft by Geoff Holder
