Francis MacManus Short Story Competition

It's a competition to write a short story for the ear, for the radio. That's not the same as a story on the page. Read your story out loud. Remember your audience can't go back to check a detail. Think lyric, rhythmic.

  • The competition is open to anyone born or resident in Ireland.
  • Only one entry per person is allowed.
  • Entries must be original work of the author and not previously published or broadcast.
  • Stories must be between 1,800 - 2,000 words.
  • Entries should be double spaced and type written on one side of A4 paper.
  • The Authors name should only appear on the official entry form.
Deadline: 21st January 2013

There is no Entry Fee for Submission. Free

Entries should be posted or delivered to:
                                                                RTE Radio 1 Short Story Competition
