Special Notice – Competition Holiday Break

Once round seven has closed (any day now!), the rolling "100" competition is going on holiday for a well-earned rest. But don't worry, it will be coming back later in the year.

The committee are working hard in the background to sort out a few organisational issues and we felt it was safer and easier to hit the pause button and give the competition a short break.

Don't worry if you've entered round seven. All those entries will be judged soon by the brilliant Jane Wenham-Jones.

But if any of you were thinking of entering round eight, please keep hold of your entry until we relaunch the competition. We'll let you know via the website, newsletter and Link when round eight opens. Hey – you've got a bit more time for that extra bit of editing now, haven't you?

Many thanks.

— Simon Whaley, competition administrator.

Welcome to our continuously running, open writing competition.

  • Closing date: No closing date; it's a rolling competition. Each round ends when 100 entries have been accepted. Subsequent entries will automatically go into the next round.
  • Entry fees:
    • £ 3.00 – single entry.
    • £ 5.50 – two entries.
    • £ 8.00 – three entries.
  • Prizes:
    • £ 75 – winner.
    • £ 25 – runner-up.

The "100" competition is made up of sequential rounds. Each round runs for 100 entries and each round has £ 100 worth of prizes to be won.

Each round will be judged by a different, well-qualified professional.

All you have to do is write a mini-tale of exactly 100 words in length.
