About HG Wells Short Story Competition

 

Founded by the world-renowned BBC Aeronautics Correspondent Reg Turnill and his wife, Margaret, to celebrate the life and works of HG Wells and encourage creative writing, especially among the young.

 

The annual HG Wells Short Story Competition offers a £250 Senior and £1,000 Junior prize (* see footnote) and free publication of all shortlisted entries in a quality, professionally published paperback anthology (and Kindle version).

 

Entry to the Junior competition is FREE and entry to the Senior competition is £10 (£5 for those with student ID).

 

The theme for this year’s competition is TIME in its broadest interpretation.

 

There are two categories:

 

*  Authors 21 years of age and under (on 8th July 2019) with a prize of £1,000. (Entry is free).

 

* Authors aged 22 years and above on 8th July 2019 with a prize of £250 (entry £10 or £5 with student id). Yes, the Junior Prize is higher than the “22 and over” Prize – see footnote for explanation!

Entry will be via online form only.

 

Dates for your diary:

 

Monday 8th July 2019 : final date for entries

Saturday 21st September 2019 : shortlists announced

Sunday 24th November 2019 : Awards Ceremony at The Grand, Folkestone

* The £1,000 Junior Prize is funded by a legacy from our founder Reg Turnill at his specific instruction. The £250 “22 and over” prize was not part of that legacy and is funded by a sponsor, hence the different amounts. You can learn more in our FAQs.
