Welcome to Ungagged’s first short story competition! We know our listeners are a creative bunch, so we thought we’d give you an opportunity to showcase your talent.
Theme: A lefty winter tale.
The theme is broad and can be interpreted however you feel – judges are looking for something original and well written that holds their interest.
Wordcount: No more than 2000 words
Deadline: 3rd January 2018
Entry: Pay as you feel. Suggested donation £2.50, but no one will be excluded because they can’t pay.
Prizes: The stories will be judged by a panel of Ungagged contributors. The overall winner will appear on the site, win a £50 cash prize and have their story read out on the podcast. A shortlist of our favourites will appear on the Ungagged website, and may also appear on the podcast.
Prizes will be paid via paypal or cheque. There is no geographical restriction to this competition – anyone can enter and we will do our best to accommodate other currencies if the winner is outside the UK. We do ask, however, that entries are in English (or Raiphish!).
Technical stuff: You retain all rights to your work. Writing must be your own original work, which is not under an exclusivity deal and you are free to publish. By entering you agree having your story published on the Ungagged website and podcast.
Winner will be announced at the beginning of February
