Mslexia – many deadlines

As much as I would love to go through it all for you, there are quite a few so I would suggest going through their list and seeing which submission/competition suits you best.

The fiction desk – No deadline

For short stories 1,000 – 20,000 words. Selected stories make it on their anthology.

Shoreline of infinity – many deadlines

Another one with different things you can submit. This one is strictly for the sci-fi writers.

The peoples friend – many deadlines

Many options but they are super specific with their requirements so read through very carefully.

Dinesh Allirajah Prize – 26th October

2,000 – 6,000 word short stories following the theme ‘scent’.

The writing quarter – last day each month

I mean its based in Australia but they said anyone can join in. They accept any theme with a maximum of 3,000 words and entry is free, yayyyy!

Reader writer lounge – 31st August

Another open theme short story one. Free entry for the comp but they also provide a feedback/editing service (gotta pay for that) which is pretty cool.

BBC writers room

Writers room is amazing for script writers so keep an eye on their site especially if you write plays and stuff.
