A new upcoming section of the site will showcase short stories or extracts – by up and coming or established writers. We are open to all styles and genres, but please keep them fairly family-friendly, as stories here are posted on-line for anyone to read. Before you submit please make sure you have proofread and formatted your work so it is ready to post. Ideally, the story will make us laugh, cry, shudder or think – if it does all we may well be left in awe!
The work must be 8,000 words or under. It can be a complete short story or an extract from a large piece – Please mark on the work, or in the accompanying message whether it’s an extract or complete piece. Please provide a summary of the work in the message field. If published online – you will (of course) be credited and the copyright of the work remains solely with you. The aim of the Writers Initiative is to publish a wide array of work, but we cannot guarantee your work will be published on the site.
Writing should be submitted either by PDF or Word files. Files should be no larger than 2mb.
