ABCtales Winter Write-Off!
Posted by Luke Neima on Mon, 25 Nov 2013
I’m proud to be announcing ABCtales’ Winter Prose and Poetry Competition! The theme is ‘Winter’ — but the thematic is loose and you can incorporate it as much or as little into your work as you’d like. This is a fifty/fifty competition – half of the proceeds will be split between our winners, and half will go to funding ABCtales (which is still bearing the brunt of the cost of our latest redesign!)
The competition is open to all ABCtales members to enter, on payment of a £5 entry fee, or £9 for two entries or £12 for three in any genre. No more than three entries per writer.
The competition is being judged by the Editor of ABCtales. The opinion of the judge is final. No employee or relative of an employee of ABCtales is able to enter.
All entries must be posted on ABCtales. Entries must be marked ‘Add to Competition' in the box at the bottom of all story edit forms - just above and to the right of the save button. The two categories judged will be fiction and poetry: there will be a word limit of three hundred and fifty (350) words for poetry and twenty five hundred (2,500) words for fiction.
The prize will be split equally between winners of the poetry and prose categories. Honourable mentions will be announced but there will only be one winner in each category.
The completion is open as of now, and we’ll leave the competition open over Christmas so that you can all use the winter holidays to reflect and to write. All entries must be in by 12.00 GMT on January 6th, and we will announce the winner on January 20th at 12.00 GMT.
Entries will only be considered after the entry fee has been paid via Paypal. Payment of the fee must be made by 12.00 GMT Midnight on Monday January 6th 2014.

That’s all – have fun and don’t hesitate to get in touch (via the contact button below) if you have any comments or queries!
