Brighton Cow Writing Competitions

Brighton Cow will run four short story competitions in 2011. The deadlines will be the end of February, May, August and November. Their main writing competitions have an open theme with a 3,000 word limit. There are three prizes to the top three winning writers of £100, £50 and £25. There will also be the opportunity for the stories to be published on their website as well as being recorded for broadcast on Brighton’s Coastway Hospital Radio, which provides music and entertainment to a network of Brighton hospitals.

The competition is just four pounds to enter, via PayPal or cheque, and the competition is open to writers worldwide. Stories can be submitted online along with payment or by post with a cheque. Brighton Cow  will notify all entrants of receipt of their story. Each entry will be judged impartially and be read at least twice in full before judging decisions are made.

They are planning some fun free to enter contests too. The first is a flash fiction- 250 word limit. Deadline 31st January 2011. Five song titles are on the site as themes. Three ten pound prizes and publication on site.

Sounds like a good one!
