SIxty up

The monthly Global Short Story Competition has announced that the number of countries from which it has received entries has topped 60.
Launched more than six years ago, the competition runs every month with a £100 first prize and a £25 prize for highly commended writers.
Currently approaching £12,000 in prize money handed out, the competition has had winners, commended and shortlisted stories from all over the world. Each month’s competition is judged by Fiona Cooper, an author based in North-East England, where the competition’s organisers are based.
Organiser John Dean said: “We have had stories from every corner of the world, which delights us because the competition was established to encourage authors across the planet. We wanted to encourage writers voices were yet to be heard. The fact that we have had stories from so many countries shows just what a global competition it has become.
The competition can be entered at - less than two days to enter the May comp.
