Short Story Contest

My lovely publishers Choc Lit are holding a short story contest where, by writing about chocolate, you can also win chocolate!

We're looking for short stories of up to 1,500 words in which the central theme is chocolate - eating it, drinking it, cooking with it, or anything else.

1st prize £200, publication on the Choc Lit website and Choc Lit’s authors corner blog and a box of chocolates from Plush Chocolates.
A Runner Up will receive £50 and a box of chocolates from Plush Chocolates.

Your judges are Choc Lit authors Margaret James and Sue Moorcroft. Both are experienced creative writing tutors. Margaret also writes the monthly Fiction Focus for Writing Magazine and Sue is head fiction judge for short story competitions at Writers Forum.

For more information, visit Choc Lit's website. Good luck!

    If my 17 year old daughter wanted to try, would she be allowed? Is there an age requirement?

  3. I'm not sure about an age limit, I'll try and find out.
