Award Submissions

There are two awards. The Writing Award is for unpublished stories and the eBook Award is for published stories, whether that is in hard back, paperback or e-book versions. You don’t have to get votes for the main award. The votes are only if you want to enter for the cash prize. Our judges will read the submissions and judge the final winners.
