Markets For Writers

Here’s a competition especially for those of you, like me, beginning to stretch themselves on the flash front. Esther, for those who don’t know, does a series of weekly prompts that are excellent and now this.


My market for you this week is a very special one – it’s the launch of my first short story competition! Over the years I’ve entered lots of writing competitions and been fortunate enough to win some. There’s no feeling quite like it so I thought I’d give someone the opportunity to enjoy that special moment when they find out their story has been chosen as the winning entry.  Please share this and tell everyone about it!

I’m planning to launch a range of competitions. Here are the details of the first one:

Flash Fiction Competition

Prizes: 1st £50, 2nd £25, 3rd £10

Entry fee: £2 per story

Word Limit: Stories of up to 250 words are invited on any theme.

Payment can be made by credit card or Paypal, via the website. Cheques should be made payable to Esther Newton.

Entries should be submitted as e-mail attachments…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  1. Three posts a day?! How are you doing this? I’m beginning to think you have a little army of gnomes or something lurking about typing your posts…

    Thank you so much for this info. More and more people are getting into the flashing scene. 😉
