SHORT SHORT & POETRY COMP
The Dromineer Literary Festival, in Co Tipperary, have a deadline of August 15th for their poetry and short story competitions. There's no theme mentioned, which gives more freedom. I won the story section of this a number of years ago and the theme was 'Another September'. So much easier without that, eh? Though some people love a prompt, I think, and find it challenging. Anyhoo, the details:
Short stories: 600 words (unpublished). Judge: John Maher.
Poems: up to 40 lines (unpublished). Judge: Tony Curtis.
Entry fee: €10 per story, €5 for the first poem, €3 for every subsequent poem.
Prizes: €500, €350, or €150.
Mark your envelope ‘Dromineer Literary Festival’ and send to Deborah Powell Ballycommon, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary
