Short Story Competition…Tiverton Literary Festival 2016

This morning, in the Devon town of Tiverton bestselling children’s novelist, Angie Sage, launched the Tiverton Literary Festival’s short story competition.

For those of you who were unable to attend- I can now announce that the theme for the competition is…

‘Kings and Queens’

The theme can be interpreted in anyway you like, and all genres (apart from erotic) are accepted. The competition is free to enter and open to anyone from the age of 4 upwards, with categories for all school year ages groups, as well as for those over 16. You don’t have to be local to enter, or even a UK resident to enter.

Each story has to be 400 words or under. It should be typed as a word.doc and sent to by 30th April 2016. This will give us time to judge the winners and get all the best stories published in an anthology in time for this years festival, which will run from 8th-12th June. If you have no internet access, please hand them into your local school or Tiverton Library.

Last year I had the privilege of judging the competition, and was blown away by the high standard of entries from children and adults alike. This year I am joined in the judging process by Angie Sage herself.

The winning stories will be published in a book, which will be available to purchase at the festival in June. There will be prize giving ceremony for the winners in Tiverton on 11th June – more details to follow.

We very much look forward to reading your entries.

Happy writing,

Short Story Competition…Tiverton Literary Festival Event

On the 5th March, in the Devonshire town of Tiverton, myself and my fellow festival organisers will be welcoming in this year’s Literary Festival with the help of the brilliant, Angie Sage.

Although the main festival doesn’t start until 8th June (running until 12th June), we are kicking off proceedings on 5th March with our annual short story competition!

Why not come along to St George’s Church on 5th at 11am to meet Angie, hear how to enter, and discover what this year’s competition theme is!

Last year the standard of entries was very high. I judged them alone- and it was a tough assignment! This year Angie is helping me with the selection process- I can’t wait to see what you can all come up with!

You don’t need to attend the launch to take part, nor do you need to live locally. This competition is open to everyone.

If you are unable to attend Angie’s launch, I will let you know what the story theme is- and all the rules- on the 6th March.

In the meantime, I can tell you that there are age related categories for everyone from 4 years old to adult, the word limit is 400 words, and the closing date is 30th April.

More information soon…

Happy reading,

Jenny x
