Autumn is coming! To celebrate one of the most picturesque and cosy seasons, Mighty Pens is launching a new short story writing competition with the theme ‘Autumn’ to be openly interpreted. Do you love the satisfying crunch of leaves underneath your wellies on a country walk with your dog? Or perhaps autumn evokes memories of some distant time or place. Maybe you don’t like the autumn and would rather see the sun! Whatever autumn means to you, why not write it down and enter the Mighty Pens Autumn Writing Award 2021? Grab your hot chocolate, pen and paper and let your imagination enjoy this beautiful season.
Mighty Pens would love to read short stories of no more than 1,000 words based upon your interpretation of the theme ‘Autumn’. We’d love to read stories that are cosy, emotional, thought-provoking, descriptive and so on. Stories can be in any genre although we would please make request that no horror be submitted. We don’t like to be so shocked that we spill our hot chocolate over our books! Don’t forget to check below for the full terms, conditions and requirements please.
Two overall winners will receive a Year’s Subscription to the Mighty Pens VIP Writing Club and a luxury food hamper. In addition, the two winners and ten other runners up will have exclusive feedback on their story including mentoring and tips from one of our experienced team members and will have their work published on our website.
