Short Story Competition HQ is a new site that brings together a whole world of short story competitions into one comprehensive directory.
The site is running as a companion resource to my short story writing blog, The Write Turn.
It all started when I wanted to start proving information about short story competitions to The Write Turn readers. There are directories for everything else in the writing world, but when it came to lists of short story competitions, the few pages that existed were full of outdated info and broken links and were anything but comprehensive. A quick bit of keyword research revealed it’s not like people aren’t looking for this info either. Ergo, SSCHQ.
It’s still early days, but we’ve already had a promising amount of interest from writers looking for places to show the world their talent, and maybe pick up some cool prizes along the way.
So, if short stories are your thing and you’d like to have a crack at winning something for your writing, or just get some experience submitting to professional markets, then check out Short Story Competition HQ.
