Women’s Way Short Story Competition

Woman’s Way is launching a short story competition for the second year. We want all our readers who enjoy writing to enter our competition.

Our theme this year is REINVENTION. This year, we’re narrowing the genres to five and will be picking one winner from each genre. These are:

  • Romance
  • Horror
  • Childrens/Young Adult
  • Humour/Comedy
  • Crime/Thriller

Our winners’ stories will appear in our Christmas annual, issue 51 (on sale December 27) plus some extra special gifts.

Note: They are not saying what the prize is...but there is no fee

  • Stories must be previously unpublished though you can submit more than one story per category. We will not accept poetry, scripts or an opinion piece
  • Word count: One page stories of a maximum of 800 words
  • Entries should be typed on double line spacing on side of paper only, Times New Roman, 12 point, with wide margins. All stories must be in English and each page numbered
  • Please add a cover page to each story which includes: your name, postal address, email address, contact number, name of story, word count and category you’re entering. Also include a 50-word biography
