Maybe I’ve spent too many late nights reading stories, but I’m afraid I’ve misled you on two competition deadline dates:-

The William Soutar Writing Prize deadline is 23rd June – NOT 30th June. So not a lot of time left for that one.

Conversely, The Writers Bureau Annual Short Story Award deadline also is NOT on the 30th June – but is instead on the 30th November. Lots of time for fine-tuning.

So sorry about this. Please take the precaution of always checking the website for exact details on competitions. We wouldn’t want you to miss out because of an error from ninevoices.
