Each month the club runs an 800-word short story competition for its members with a small prize, usually a $20 book voucher.
The competition is judged anonymously by our patron.
The themes are:
♦ April – ‘A long way from home’
♦ March – ‘White Fang’ and the microfiction piece – less than 200 words, subject INSOMNIA to bring to next meeting
♦ February – ‘Saturday’
♦ January – ‘SAGA LAND’
♦ November – ‘A Study in Scarlet’
♦ October – ‘Big Little Lies’
♦ September – ‘Of Mice and Men’
In order to give our patron time to read the entries, they must be sent to the TWI secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) one week before our Saturday meeting unless advised otherwise. The submitted stories/poems must be 800 words or less.
By submitting your story you agree to being published on the Tropical Writers Inc. website.
Formatting: When formatting your story for submission, please use preferably 12pt Times New Roman (or a similar easy to read font), 1.5 or double spacing. This will make it easier for our judge to read and mark (for feedback) the submissions received.
