  1. Hello
    I am hoping to send an entry for the adult flash fiction
    Can I check the tolerance for going over the 500 word count?.
    it is just that I did a competition somewhere else last year and worked so hard to keep the words under the 500, when the winners were announced their entries all exceeded the word count by a fair bit
    So just said I would ask is there an absolute upper limit to stick to
    Looks like a great festival
    Best of luck with it
    Kind Regards

  2. Hi, I was looking to enter for the competition. I’m 16 and since there is one category for under 16’s, and one for over, which one should I do? I’d rather not enter a piece for the wrong age group so I’m just checking beforehand haha.

  3. Hello!

    I submitted a story this week. On the page it says ‘receipt by email’. Should I have received a receipt by email by now? I just thought I should check this before the closing date – in case I need to resubmit the story.


  4. I also entered the Flash Fiction. I sent it on 30th January and am wondering if I should have received a receipt by now.
