Budding Dorset Writers Urged To Enter Flash Fiction Competition


9:20am 9th September 2014

Eager writers have the opportunity to flex their literary muscles in a new writing competition.

The Dorset Writers Network is looking for entries to its Flash Fiction competition, held in association with Phoenix Legacy.

The contest's theme is 'I really wasn't in the mood...', and that phrase needs to be used in the title or text of all stories submitted.  Stories entered must be under 300 words long, and anybody over the age of 16 can take part. There are two age groups, one for 16-24 year olds and one for those 25 and over. Book tokens will be awarded for the winners and two runners-up.

Finalists will have the opportunity to have their work displayed at the Dorchester Library, which will also host creative and poetry writing workshops on results day.

The final deadline for the competition is the September 30th, with the prizes announced on October 18th. The entry fee for the competition is £4 per story. Entry details are available from Phoenix Legacy on 01305 261450, or by emailing
