Time & Leisure, Tuesday 28 February 2012
This competition is now closed; entries can be found here.
Epsom, Sutton and Cheam Time & Leisure has teamed up with Sutton Writers’ Circle and Waterstones bookshop, Sutton to launch its first Short Story Competition.
Stories on any topic will be welcomed from readers, with a strict deadline for entries of Friday 6 April, 2012. There will be two age categories: Adults aged over 21 years, and Young Adults, aged 16 to 20 years. Final details of prizes will be revealed over the coming weeks, but the winners in both categories will be published in Epsom, Sutton and Cheam Time & Leisure magazine – and online. In addition the winners will be presented with a certificate and a hamper of books from Waterstones at a special presentation at Waterstones’ Sutton store on Thursday 3 May – and a year’s free membership, from Sutton Writers.
The competition follows Time & Leisure’s profile of the Sutton Writers’ Circle in the March issue of the magazine and gives talented writers from the Epsom, Sutton, Cheam and Banstead areas a timely opportunity to develop their work. Waterstones is also featuring books written by published local writers in a display in its Sutton store, from the end of February.
