Llandudno Writers' Club Competitions - Rules
*A flat entry fee of £11 is payable annually to cover 11 months of entries, including both poems and stories.
Members joining part-way through the Club year may pay pro rata.
Ad hoc entries are also OK; fee of £1 per story or poem payable to the club Treasurer at or before the monthly meeting deadline.
• Enter a Short Story or Poem (or one of each) - either format 1500 words maximum.
(Poems: an entry consists of a single poem, whatever its length.)
• Text: single line spacing in 12 point Times New Roman or Calibri
• Entries must be anonymous; only the title and your pseudonym on the text.
• At the end, please add the word count.
• Please save your text as a .doc or .txt file, and email this to Llandudno.Writers@aol.co.uk before the stated deadline. Later is too late!
PLEASE put your name or pseudonym in the File Name and the email title as well as the story/poem title.
• If you are unable to email your entry:
simply hand in your text as above, but printed on A4 paper, with your real name written on the back of each sheet. The judge won't see this.
*Please do not fold your printed story or poem. Creases cause mistakes in scanning.
• Entries are sent to an independent judge and critiques are returned by the next meeting, when winners are announced. The top 3 are placed.
Prizes: Winning story - £10
Winning poem - £5
• As many entries as possible - with authors’ permission - will be published in The Moving Finger magazine, space permitting.
