SAW Summer Competitions – Short Story and Poetry



The Scottish Association of Writers (SAW) are running a couple of competitions over the summer months, with online entry and enticing prizes.

The first is a 2000 word short story, with an open theme. Adjudicated by Olga Wojtas, and with hints of a night away at the home of SAW’s annual Writers’ Conference – Hilton Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld – together with two additional cash prizes, this competition looks set to attract a lot of interest.

For the second, SAW has announced a 40-line poetry competition. Again, an open theme, an acclaimed judge – Andy Jackson– and cash prizes. This time, for first, second and third places.

The full details, including Rules of Entry, Submission Fee, and Closing Date, can be found Here

Good luck to all entrants.
