Always interesting to see story competitions in surprising and unlikely places – so I invite you to take a look at: http://playingbingo.co.uk/competitions-prizes/short-story/index.php where you can read all the entry details for their 1st ever short story competition. Entries (unsurprisingly) have to have a “bingo” theme, but otherwise the parameters are fairly wide – any genre, between 1500-3000 words. All short listed stories will be posted on the Playing Bingo website, and there’s some decent prize money up for grabs.
The closing date is 28th Feb (Thursday) but stories should be emailed (no postal delivery times to take into account) – so if you have something suitable, or feel inspired on a possibly unusual fiction subject, then it looks like a bit of fun. And it’s FREE! 😉
