The Cheltenham Prize

As followers of  this blog will know Cheltenham Writers’ Circle received a grant last year from Cheltenham  Arts Council to run an open short story competition.  At the time we were thinking of commemorating one of the events of the First World War and the  Battle of Jutland  seemed appropriate for 2016 (neither the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme or the Easter Rising seemed quite right).  On reflection however we decided on something more literary, the 400th anniversary of  Shakespeare’s death, and to have as our theme ‘What You Will’, in other words an open theme.

You will find the details of our  competition at http://cheltprize.wordpress.com, including all the rules and how to  apply.  Besides the main prize ‘Cheltenahm Prize’ there is a subsiduary prize for entrants from our corner of England (i.e. all those with a GL postcode).

So good luck everybody!
