Writing Contests

Writing Contests

Campfire Stories writing contests are a little different than most.

To begin with, the frequency of the contest largely depends on you, the writers. The faster we get entries for each chapter, the faster we choose a winner and the faster the next contest opens. Entry is £5 for each piece of work submitted and each winner receives a prize of £50.

But perhaps more importantly, each contest represents a new chapter in a growing story. That means that your entry (1000 – 4000 words) must follow logically in the story from what has come before. You can introduce new characters, new settings, or new plotlines, but you must do so in a way that makes sense.

After submission using our online form (link coming soon), your entry will be automatically given a number and your name  removed from your piece to reduce judging bias (name, e-mail and entry will be stored in a separate spreadsheet for contact after the winner is selected).

All of the full completed stories from the Campfire Stories writing contests will be published by Utility Fog Press and the authors will receive credit for their chapters.

We would love to have you join us. If you’re interested, please use the form at the bottom of this page and send us some evidence that you are previous publshed.
