A New Start – Short Fiction Competition

13/12/2021 - 01/03/2021

We are delighted to announce a short story competition for all Postgraduate students at the University of York. Based around the theme of ‘A New Start’ we welcome short story submissions between 3,000 and 8,000 words in length. We want to showcase the thoughts and feelings of students throughout what has been a strange year, but also looking towards the future.

There are no restrictions as to genre, we only ask that you keep the tone roughly PG – 13

There is a £100 prize for the winner and £40 for any runner-ups. All fiction will be published both online, and with an aim to publish them within a print book.
