The Lacomic Cup is a knockout comic short story competition – HeadStuff’s world cup of very, very brief comic fiction.
It’s free to compete.
To enter, all you have to do is write a 250-300 word (not a word over or under!) comic short story which ends with the same word, phrase or sentence that it started with.
The best 32 entries will be chosen to go forward to Round One. These 32 will be chosen by HeadStuff staff (all author names will be redacted during the decision making process).
The deadline for entries is May 24th

HeadStuff.org is a new website. And oh! it’s a wonderful place. We are interested in everything that we think is interesting. We love literature like this and we are always open to submissions. We accept basically everything with two stipulations.
1: It has to be interesting and
2: it has to be good.
We have stories, poems, criticism, reviews, essays… basically, anything literary is in our literature section.
We also have great Science like this and lovely Art like this and sometimes we merge the two. We find History very interesting and it can be funny, but maybe not quite as funny as the stuff in our Humour section. We love Music and Film and we’re also into what’s going on in the world.
Every month we have a new Legend of the Month which has proven very popular, and we even leave a clue at the bottom of each new Legend post so that readers can try to guess the next legend, and win a legend-related prize.
If you are interested in contributing to any of these sections, or even multiple sections like a lot of our contributors do, then please feel free to send an email to Editor@HeadStuff.org and you can see each of our contributors here.
Hey, even if you have an idea or a suggestion, maybe you’re uncertain about a topic, or you have an idea for a serialized or recurring piece, get in touch and we’ll talk.
We’re very happy to be involved with ShortStops, and very delighted that you read this all the way to the end. Go you. You get an A.
