Competitions Update – August 2013

It’s been a while since I last did a competitions update, in fact May was the last one I created and I apologise to those of you who have found it useful and helpful. With the two books I was working on now completed though I’ll be getting back into my usual routine of blogging and social networking in the coming week or so. To get myself started I’ve created this months post and below you’ll find all the latest updates you need to find the perfect writing competition to showcase your talent.

Don’t forget the Hysteria 2013 Short Story Writing Competition is still open to entries from women all over the world.

You can find a complete list of all competitions I’ve found to download on the UK and International Writing Competitions overview page.
