I am the editor of a Pune-based publishing company. The reason I am here on writers.net is that we have recently announced a short story competition, the details of which have been given below. There is no entry fee, no forms to fill in. It's open to all creative writers. Take a look.
SHORT STORY CONTEST:
For all aspiring writers out there who have been bubbling with stories that need to be told to the world, here's a grand opportunity to get published.
Mirage Books has organised a short story contest with a difference. If you think you have it in you to be bold, meaningful and different, then go for it. Most importantly, 'break the rules' in your own way. Let ideas take wings. Bring out something exciting, path-breaking and nerve-wrecking. Show us how you can prove the dictum that rules are always made to be broken and your story will get published in our upcoming title, which is named – you should have guessed it by now - Break The Rules.
All you have to do is send your story with a word length of about 1,000-1,500 words through email. Each published story will be accompanied with the writer's short bio and photograph.
And, you may well ask, what's the purpose behind this project? As a new-age publishing house that is going to introduce some dramatic changes in the world of books, we believe that there has to be a platform for budding writers so that their ideas and expressions can reach out far and wide. Most reputed and established publishing houses have no time to spare for budding and amateur writers. All that they want to do is to capitalise on recognised names that guarantee sales.
Anyway, so what are you waiting for? Just hit the keyboard and send us your story in English. The contest closes on October 15, 2008.
