Motivational Monday! Sheila Malady Short Story Competition



This week we're featuring the Sheila Malady Short Story Competition!

This competition is presented by Shakespeare on the River and is for short stories, of up to 2,000 words. This years theme is Light/Dark, which reflects the theme of the 2017 Shakespeare on the River Festival, Illuminate.

This competition is about both celebrating, and breathing new life into, the works of Shakespeare, by inviting writers to send in their own short creations.

The winner for this competition will be announced at the opening ceremony of the Stratford on Avon Shakespeare Festival on the 22nd of April 2017, and first prize will receive $300, two tickets to the community play performances, and a handcrafted timber quill.
There is also a local prize for one writer from Gippsland who will receive a Collins Bookstore Voucher and two tickets to the community play performances.
One young writer will also receive a Collins Bookstore Voucher and two tickets to the community play performances.

The entry for this competition is $5.

The closing date is Thursday the 23rd of March.

Please remember to check the website for formatting guidelines and more information, sadly many great stories, poems and literary works are disqualified in many competitions simply because the writer did not use the desired formatting, don't let your work be one them!

To read the rules, find out more, and to enter, please visit Sheila Malady Short Story Competition.

Happy Writing & Good Luck
