Commonwealth Short Stories 2011

Each year, to promote creative writing, The Commonwealth Foundation has a Short Story Competition for all citizens of a Commonwealth country, aged 19 and over.

The winner receives a prize of £2000, with four separate regional prizes of £500. There's also two special prizes of £500 - one for the best story for children; the other for the best short story that fits the theme "Women as Agents of Change".

The competition opened on January 15th and the deadline is March 1st. Stories need to be under 600 words and submitted online.

Good luck if you decide to enter!
