Finally, after a short delay, we now have our list of winners for the Hysteria Writing Competition 2014. I am so pleased to say that the standard was, as usual, exceptionally high and our judges all said how much they enjoyed reading the variety of entries sent through.
I’d also like to give you a sneak preview of the Hysteria 3 anthology cover. Hysteria 3 contains all ten winning entries from each category, together with some excellent advice about entering writing competitions from a number of our judges from this year and last.
The manuscript is now in production and Hysteria 3 is currently available to order through the Hysteria website and on Amazon Kindle.
The clock’s ticking away and the August 31st writing competition deadline for Hysteria 2014 is approaching fast. If you’ve already got something down on paper now is the time to start editing. Hemingway said write drunk and edit sober. In other words, after the passion and fire that comes with creativity you have to look at your work with a cool, dispassionate eyes – almost as if someone else had written it.
Welcome to the May Hysteria Writing Competition newsletter. I don’t know what your expectations are about things like entries and the amount of competition, but at the moment we’ve only a tiny number of entries so the chances of winning are extremely high indeed.
April is always a busy time for the Hysteria Writing Competition, mostly because we launch on the 1st and then spend the month introducing our volunteer judges and telling the world the competition has begun.
Each year we interview our volunteer judges for the Hysteria Writing Competition and I’d like to introduce Abigail Wyatt.
