Hello there!

We wondered if any of you might enjoy our fun little Halloween writing competition? It’s free to enter, and the prize is £100, plus the winning short story brought to life by 4 professional voice actors and broadcast on our podcast.

All the details and entry requirements can be found here…

https://www.failingwriterspodcast.com/blog/halloween-flash-fiction-competition/

Thanks very much, and good luck to everyone from the AW forums who enter!

Best wishes,

Jon, Tom & Dave - The Failing Writers Podcast.



By the way, The Failing Writers Podcast is aimed at creative writers of all shapes and sizes. So imagine a small, funny self-help group for 3 friends who’ve always wanted to become writers but stuff keeps getting in the way. Stuff like jobs, kids... or lack of talent. We challenge each other to do writing tasks, interview bestselling writers to see how they do it, talk about what we’ve been trying to write and what issues we’ve faced, enter competitions, review books on writing etc, perform stupid songs and little skits. It’s basically a bit of light hearted edu-tainment for creative folk, and it’s available wherever you get your podcasts (or here: www.failingwriterspodcast.com)

Must include a word in the Oct 4 podcast.
Any theme or genre as long as it relates to Halloween.
You got word count. I might have missed a detail, those were the three I saw.

Hi Unimportant!

Our T's & C's say... original and unpublished work of the entrant which is not currently submitted for publication nor for any other competition or award.

So, as long as it's yours copyright-wise, original and not currently being considered somewhere else, that's cool with us. Hope that answers your question! (Wasn't 100% sure if that's what you meant by "reprint").

Best of luck if you decide to enter!!

Tom

Thanks! I must have missed that.

For reprints I meant work that has been published years ago, but the author has retained the right to sell it again.

What a fun idea y'all have come up with! Imma have to check out your podcasts.
 

Happy Thanksgiving
