Latest event: ORDER & CHAOS - Next deadline: WOMEN & GIRLS (Sun 4 July)

NEXT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 11.59pm on Sunday 4th July for WOMEN & GIRLS

NEXT EVENT: Tuesday August 10th - WOMEN & GIRLS: Our 5th annual celebration of stories about and by women & girls. N.B. For the avoidance of doubt, we are ONLY seeking submissions from female authors writing female protagonists for this theme. (Our usual male:female submission ratio is about 2:1 so this is our way of helping to redress the imbalance, in case you're curious ...)
