This cash was raised from our 2014 Open Short Story Competition.
We hold writing competitions throughout the year and some are free to enter. As well as cash prizes for our winners of £100, £50, £25 and more, our annual competition provides a donation for any UK charity or voluntary group, as selected by entrants to the competition. Entrants can opt to make a nomination and we pick a winner for the donation randomly out of a hat.
We welcome entries from worldwide, and organise competitions for new writers as well as for the more experienced.
We can also provide critiques and offer a Short Story Writing Course. http://erewashwriterscompetition.weebly.com/writing-course--critique-service.html
