Submit a Short Story

Submit your story or poem below and we’ll publish it on this website. Once your story has been accepted, we’ll send you a link to the page where it’s published.

You can submit your written story at any time of the year, and it will be entered into the next competition. Get in as early as you can, so more people can read your story and vote.

The public will vote on their favorite stories, so tell your family and friends!

NOTE: We recommend that you write your story somewhere else and then paste it here (Microsoft Word, Notes etc). It’s never a good idea to write directly into WordPress websites as they can malfunction.
