Writers' competition and publishing opportunity


New publisher seeks material

Are you a talented writer of short fiction?  Are you looking for a chance with a dynamic and innovative new publisher?

If so, consider submitting a short story of between 9,000 and 12,000 words to new London publisher Legend Press by the 17th June for their forthcoming publication - a selection of short stories based around a single day in the life of a character. The concept is inspired by the stream of consciousness style and will allow the reader an insight into all those lives surrounding them everyday.

The project will be backed by a strong publicity campaign and will be widely available through commercial outlets.

For further details on how to submit a story, email:
