Short Fiction Literary Award

South East Writers Inc will be holding our first ever Short Fiction Literary Award.

This is a very exciting time for us as we launch the South East Writers Inc Literary Award. The South East Writers Inc Literary Award will be held twice per year with the aim to give our members and other writers the opportunity to hone their skills and have their work recognised.

Each year we will publish in the form of an anthology the work of our winners and twenty (20) of the best stories from each competition. As this is our very first award and we are already into the second half of 2018, the anthology will include the winners of 2018 and the two (2) competitions from 2019. The anthology will be available in April 2020.
