Hay on Wye Short Story Contest

If you like to write, you may be interested in a new writing competition, the Hay on Wye Short Story Contest. Closing date for receipt of entries is 19th July. The theme for 2008 is: "Deception". Authors may enter as many stories as they like. There is an entry fee of £6.00 for each story submitted. The Hay Short Story Contest is a charity event and all proceeds will go to Hay and District Comunity Support. The prizes are as follows: 1st prize £400, 2nd £200, 3rd £100. The famous HayFestival (22 May - 1 June 2008) is an annual literary event at Hay-on-Wye, Wales. If like me, you aren't able to go, there is consolation via virtual visits: the Guardian offers a Hay podcast and Mariella Frostrup presents a special programme from the Hay Festival on BBC Radio 4 Open Book.
