The Anthology Travel Writing Competition

Deadline: 31st November

Established for writers who like to share authentic travel experiences and to provide a platform for publication. The Anthology Travel Writing Competition is open to original and previously unpublished travel articles in the English language by writers of any nationality, living anywhere in the world. We are looking for an engaging article that will capture the reader’s attention, conveying a strong sense of the destination and the local culture.

Open to both new and established writers, articles submitted must not exceed 1,000 words. Writers can submit as many entries as they wish. Each submission will require a separate entry form and is subject to a separate entry fee.

Short Story Competition at Ennis Book Club Festival

Deadline: 5th December

Ennis Book Club Festival is delighted to announce the launch of a new short story competition, with the winner to be revealed at Ennis Book Club Festival 2024.  The 18th annual festival, which will bring a host of international and Irish authors to Ennis to promote and celebrate the joy of reading, will be held from March 1st to 3rd 2024.

Each year Ennis Book Club Festival runs a popular debut authors event and Martina Durac, the Artistic Director, notes that in launching this new initiative the festival aims to support and encourage the development of new writing. This is an exciting development and we look forward to receiving entries from writers who have not yet published a full collection of work. The story competition adds a new dimension to the festival and the winner will have an opportunity to read their story at an event during the festival weekend.

The competition will be judged by writers Aingeala Flannery and Neil Hegarty.  The winner will receive €750 and there will be two runners up with prizes of €500 and €250.
