Michael Collins is pretty good actually in a messed up, disjointed kind of way.

Unfortunate name, though.

€14!!!!??? That's like 22c a word! I know times are hard and all but COME ON.

Yes, it's a rather big ask. €10 would be so much more acceptable. They clearly hope to make the prize money back on entries.

Considering the entry fee and already having a Fish one pager shortlisting under my belt I was going to give this one a miss...but I am sorely tempted - and I have a wee story up to no good....

Worth a try if you have a story ready, maybe. But that entry fee is a killer, all right.
