The Hysteria Writing Competition is taking a break and will re-open with a new format on 1st April 2020
The 2020 international writing competition will open on 1st April 2020. If you’d like to be reminded of the dates just sign up to our newsletter below and grab a free copy of Hysteria 3 at the same time.
The Hysteria Writing Competition is run by Linda Parkinson-Hardman and 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. It now supports the continuing support I give to women personally.
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.
All payments are to be made online 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.
The winners and nine runners up in each category will be published in the anthology Hysteria 7, due for publication in November. Winners also receive a free e-copy of the anthology when it is published.
