Here is all the information you will need to enter the competition.

First read all the rules.  It’s very important that you’re familiar with the requirements so that there is no confusion later.

Next, fill out your entry form, uploading your story in PDF format.  (NOTE: the entry form will be available at the start of the competition on 1 January 2023.)

Before submitting your story, please be sure to put your name and story title in the file name but not in the document. Only one person on the Organising Committee will receive the entries and know the identities of the entrants, and he/she will remove the entrant’s name so that the anonymity of each writer is preserved during the pre-screening and judging processes.

Finally, pay your entry fee.  A link to pay your entry fee will be available at the bottom of the entry form once it’s been submitted. NOTE — Entrants under 18 may enter for free, with proof of age.
