In honour of International Women's Day, I thought I would let you know about the Mslexia Short Story Competition. The deadline for entries is 18 March 2013 and it is a woman-only competition (hence the International Women's Day connection).

Also listed on their website are some workshops my writer followers may also be interested in. Click here for the competition: Mslexia short story competition
