Absurd Stories Competition

The competition received 70 entries. Two didn’t fit the requirements so, sadly, are disqualified. The judging is being carried out. Each story has received at least three readings and, as we write this, we now have a shortlist of 20.

We guaranteed a minimum prize of £25.00 each for the three

prizes. In fact the winners received £45.00 each and a similar amount was raised for the charity.   (We hope we can achieve at least the same for the Sonnet competition).

The  competition Anthology now available:

A5 paperback. 135 pages. UK Price: £5.50.

Europe: £7.70 or €11.00. Rest of World: £8.80 or $13.00
