Cornish Short Stories: Three Weeks to Go

There are three weeks left to submit your short stories to Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing, a new anthology due to be published by The History Press in May 2018. Submissions close on 7 July 2017.

Editors Felicity Notley and Emma Timpany are looking for stories of 2,000 to 6,000 words in length, though exceptional work which falls outside this range will also be considered.

All entries must be the author’s own work and should not have been published anywhere, in print or online. The stories must have a Cornish setting and the author must be Cornish or resident in Cornwall. Stories for children are not suitable for this publication.

Within these guidelines, we encourage you to make full use of your creative freedom and embrace a wide range of subject matters, literary styles and genres (literary fiction, crime fiction, historical fiction, sci-fi etc.) We are simply looking for the very best new writing.

You can find more details, get in touch with questions, and submit your work on our website. We’re also on Twitter @CornishShorts and Facebook.
