HappenStance Press short story competition


The third short story competition from HappenStance, a Scottish press that's making its presence known. I used to live in Scotland. I wonder would that make them more likely to publish me? I feel a story coming on about Lochs, the Glaswegian railway and rain.

Prizes: £150, £75 and £50
Judge: Janice Galloway
Length: 2,500 words (maximum).
Entry fee: £5.00 per story (£6 online entry).
Deadline: Saturday, August 9th, 2009.

Winners' (possibly also commended) entries will be published in a HappenStance chapbook.
Extracts from winning stories will also be published online.
Each contributor to the STORY chapbook will receive three complimentary copies.
A free tick-box critique will be offered to each entrant if an SAE is enclosed (or by email for online entry).

Ooh, Janice Galloway. Nice link, thank you for sharing it.

And Glasgow, and the railway, and rain? I chose to live in Glasgow for the climate. It makes me attractively snarly and passive aggressive and constantly, ever so slightly, damp... I tell you, the men on the the clockwork orange cannot resist my humid frizzy charms. Glasgow'll make a poet of me yet!
