Shoreham Word Fest: Poetry and Short Story Competition

Shoreham Wordfest is launching a competition for 10 line poems and 10 word (yes 10 word!) short stories to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Original unpublished entries on any theme are invited from all Sussex residents, with £150 top prize for the winning poem and £50 top prize for the very short story. There is a special prize for poems by 16-18 year olds.

The poetry will be judged by John McCullough, prize winning poet and creative writing tutor at Sussex University. The short stories will be judged by Catherine Smith, award winning writer who also teaches at Sussex University.
