We are two Brighton-based writers, who have just set up our own website. It is called the Brighton COW. (The COW part stands for ‘Community of Writers’.) We are aiming to promote new writers and writing through a range of competitions. We will run several short story and flash fiction competitions throughout the year, some with an open-theme, some with specific ones. We are planning some fun free-to-enter contests too.
Our first writing competition has an open theme with a 3,000 word limit. There are three prizes to the top three winning writers of £100, £50 and £25. There will also be the opportunity for the stories to be published on our website as well as being recorded for Brighton’s Coastway Hospital Radio, which provides music and entertainment to a network of Brighton hospitals. The competition is just £4 (four pounds) to enter, via PayPal or cheque, and the competition is open to writers worldwide. Stories can be submitted online along with payment or by post with a cheque. The deadline is 1 November 2010.
