Short Story Writing Competition

Closed - winners announced

What a load of Drabble

Closing Date: End of March

I love discovering new words, and one I came across recently was drabble. It's a wonderful word which is the name for a short story told in exactly 100 words.

Why don't you have a go? It's our brand new competition for February and March, and if you win we'll send you a copy of volume 15 & 16 of The World's Thousand Best Short Stories - The American Story-tellers. Over 90 classic short stories including work by Henry James, Mark Twain and O. Henry. The winner will also get the inspiring smell of a dusty second-hand bookshop as part of the prize! What more could you ask for?

It's more difficult than you might think to write a story this length; 100 words is about the amount you would write on a postcard home, which is next to nothing really.

Good Luck!

This competition is not open for entries at this point in time.


This competition will be judged by Adam and Andy, Co-Founders of Bibliofaction.
