LoveReading Very Short Story Award

Short stories submitted for the LoveReading Very Short Story Award! Though they be but small they leave a mighty impression!

We invite submissions of stories between 600-1000 words in length, written in English, in any genre. We accept entries from overseas as well as the UK. This is an inclusive award. We ask for just one entry per author and we accept stories from both unpublished and published authors but only unpublished stories were eligible for entry.

We're looking for exciting, stimulating, original and beautifully written stories that leave a powerful impression on the reader

Please see our forthcoming posts and T&Cs for all details.
