Candy Jar Books is offering an exciting new opportunity for aspiring writers. Launching at Candy Jar Book Festival in Cardiff, writers can submit a short story based on the Doctor Who character – Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.
These stories will be included in a book to be released early next year.
The overall winner will be offered the chance to pen their very own Lethbridge-Stewart book, and work alongside range editor and creative director of the Haisman estate Andy Frankham-Allen and will also receive a Kindle Fire to read it on. Both the winner and runner-up will receive all the Lethbridge-Stewart novels from 2018. All winning entries will see their stories published in book form in 2018.
The South Wales Short Story Competition will be accepting submissions from 17th August. Entrants are permitted to submit up to two short stories of no more than 3000 words. The competition is open to all unpublished writers across the UK.
All submissions must be received by end of September. The competition is £5 to enter per story. The terms and conditions, such as copyright restrictions, will be emailed once the entrant has paid.
You must quote your 4-digit order reference number when submitting your story, or your submission may not be counted.
