‘Summer’ … a word that can arouse complex emotions. It’s the theme for our 2019 short story competition.  Write 1200 – 1500 words, and make us feel your summer.

Details of our competition are here.

Our aim is to raise funds in aid of Polymyalgia Rheumatica & Giant Cell Arteritis, linked rheumatic conditions that cause severe pain and can lead to sight loss. The conditions are little known by the public and therefore PMRGCAuk (established to help sufferers and aid research) is a ‘Cinderella’ charity. All profits from the competition will be passed to PMRGCAuk.
