Win £2,000 for a 100-word work of fiction in the free-to-enter contest
All entries must be original, unpublished short stories of exactly 100 words. Running for the seventh year, the competition is in three categories.
• In the adult category, the first prize is £2,000 and two runners up will each win £200.
• In the 12-18s category, the winner will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, a Samsung Gear S2 watch and £150 for their school. Two runners up will each receive £100.
• In the under-12s category, the winner will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and £100 for their school. Two runners up will each win £75.
The winning entries will be published in Reader’s Digest. Reader’s Digest editor-in-chief Tom Browne told WM that Reader’s Digest has copyright for any stories it chooses to publish, but in those cases wouldn’t have an issue with the writers reprinting them elsewhere, as long as it was flagged up.
The closing date to enter the 100-Word-story competition is 20 February.
