With only 5 days until the deadline for submissions, I’ve discovered that Purbeck Literary Festival are running a short story competition.
All submissions must be 1,000 words, give or take 50 words and on the theme of ‘Wild’.
I haven’t entered a writing competition before so I’m going to take on the challenge. I barely have the time to consider if this is a good idea or not, let alone come up with a concept, draft it and put it forward.
I’ll let you know how I get on.
– Update –
I managed to get my submission finished and I quite enjoyed the process. Although, it did take up a lot of my time which I’m putting down to inexperience. Hopefully, any future competitions that I enter will be a bit easier.
