I've only just now discovered your short story competition and saw that entries closed yesterday! I have the perfect story to enter. Is it really too late?

It is too late for our competition so here is a good site to find competitions that are still open.

Is the RM poetry comp only for women? If so, I have a problem.

SWWT Moderator 20.07.2017 14.31

No problem, Allan, both the poetry and the s/s comps are open to all. We look forward to receiving your entry. Thank you for the enquiry.
