Competition entries

I was very saddened to learn that Strange Chemistry/Open Door were not taking my submission forward to the next stage for their YA fantasy novel competition.  Rejection is never easy, but worse when it comes at lunchtime on a Saturday.  But, never one to rest on my laurels, I entered another three competitions (two yesterday and one today but with two poems).  I thought I would post the details of the competitions on here in case anyone else wishes to give them a go:

1)  DEADLINE 29 OCTOBER 2012 The Mail on Sunday Novel competition.  The opening 50-150 words of a novel (which has to introduce the word 'train').  The prize is £400 in book tokens and an Arvon Writing Course place.  There are five runners-up prizes of between £150-300.  Send your typed entry with name, address, telephone numbers and email address all on the same page to: The Mail on Sunday Novel Competition, 84 Drayton Gardens, London, SW10 9SB.  Results announced next Summer.

2)  DEADLINE 31 OCTOBER 2012 The Belper New Play competition.  Plays of 5-30 min length featuring no more than four characters.  Type 12pt script and classify genre then send to: The Belper Short Play Festival, 31A Field Lane, Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 1DD.  Winner notified by 31 January 2013.

3)  DEADLINE 2 NOVEMBER 2012 Original Writing UK Competition.  'Time capsule - a message to future self' contact for entry form and rules, then send up to two poems by 5pm on the 2nd.  Winners announced by 19th November.
