The Hysteria Writing Competition 2020 is now closed to entries
The Hysteria Writing Competition originally supported the work of my social enterprise, the Hysterectomy Association. The Hysterectomy Association closed after 22 years in 2019 and all content was moved to my blog.
The purpose of the competition is to showcase entries that appeal to all my visitors; I accept entries in any genre except erotica or horror.
In light of the coronavirus crisis there is no charge to enter this competition and and entries can be uploaded in .doc, .docx, rtf or txt format. No other file formats will be accepted and entries made using them will be disqualified.
There is a £25 prize for the winners of each category. Nine additional entries will be included in the Hysteria 7 anthology to be published in November 2020.
- Short story – maximum 600 words
- Flash fiction – maximum 100 words
- Poetry – maximum 12 lines
- Under 16’s – any genre above
The winners and nine runners up in each category will be published in the anthology Hysteria 7, due for publication in November.
