Where are all you short fiction writers?

It’s wonderful that we always have so many great poets coming to the Loose Muse events. Every month, lots of women step up to the mic to blow our minds with their lyrical verse. Having said that, we really don’t want anyone to think that we exist for poetry alone. At Loose Muse we encourage ALL women writers (including playwrights, script writers, flash fictioners as well as short fiction and novel writers) to come and perform. We would love to have even more great short stories submitted, for example, to the anthology.

Here is a great short fiction competition which you still have time to enter if you hurry. You can win up to £1000. Anthony Howcroft, the director of InkTears, is looking for writers who have, ‘enough quality short stories’ to publish a collection. Alternatively, they are looking for writers whose work may go into an anthology. So you could enter a competition and find yourself publishing a collection at the end of it!

It sounds like a great opportunity, so don’t miss out. http://www.inktears.com/Inktears/WritersNewWritersContest.html

Elsewhere, Cinnamon Press has some great poetry collection, novella or short story competitions that are still open.  Go to http://www.cinnamonpress.com/competitions/ to take a look.

Book trust is a great website for listing competitions, so do take a look at that as well, although I’ve often found it slightly annoying that they don’t organise the competitions by date relevancy. No one likes clicking for ages to find out that a competition happened back in January!

So all you short story writers, before you send our your brilliant prose to these great competitions, why not come along to Loose Muse and try them out on an audience?

Love,

  10. With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My
    site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the web without my authorization. Do you know any
    methods to help protect against content from being stolen?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • I’m afraid I don’t know much about this. My advice would be to approach the people who use your work and gently ask them to remove it – as long as you can prove that the content is more than 80% yours. Otherwise, unfortunately the internet is a bit of a Wild West frontier of people nicking or appropriating what they like. It’s best to just take it as flattery, as all imitation is.

  11. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button!
