If you like writing and want to be in with a chance to enter the Powers and Irish Times short story competition this year then read on. The task is to write a short story of no more than 450 words and you could win €10,000 and the chance to get published in an anthology of short stories to appear later this year.
This year’s theme is “Celebrating what truly matters”. It can be about anything within that theme – love, friendship, a special person or place, a moment that changed your life, an episode that mattered, something that makes you happy or sad, furious or philosophical. And the rules specify that the story doesn’t have to hark back to the past but can be about the here and now, exploring what truly matters to us in 2012.
The closing date for the competition is the 17th of April and the winner will be announced and published by the 26th of May in The Irish Times Magazine. More details here including tips from established writers.
