Still Time To Enter AsparaWriting Festival Short Story Competition
Do you fancy yourself as a budding writer? If so, there’s still time to enter the AsparaWriting Festival short story competition.
The quirky competition is being run ahead of the AsparaWriting Festival at the end of April and is open to three age categories – adult (17+), seven to 11 year olds and 12-16 year olds. Writers in each category are asked to come up with a short story of no more that 6,000 words for adults and 3,000 for juniors. Stories must be set in the Vale of Evesham or the Cotswolds, fit the crime genre and include asparagus.
Said Sue Jenkinson, Festival organiser and owner of The Evesham Hotel: “We’re so excited to uncover the undiscovered literary talent in the Vale and can’t wait to read the entries. This really is a chance to get creative and get involved with the first ever AsparaWriting Festival. Good luck to everyone who enters!”
The winners of each category will be published in this year’s anthology, ‘AsparaWriting 2014’ and receive a free copy. The adult winner will also receive a £100 prize and a trophy whilst both junior winners will be awarded a £20 book token.
All winners will be invited to attend the Festival Finale with author Simon Brett, who will present them with their prizes on Saturday 21 June 2014.
Contestants can enter by post or online. Closing date for entries is Saturday 29 March 2014 at 11.59pm. All details can be found at asparawritingfestival.co.uk/short-story-competitition
