Dear Writer

The H G Wells Short Story Competition is 10 years old this year and we are delighted to be able to say that we are going from strength to strength. Last year was our best ever year for entries which are proud to have received from across the globe.

As a previous entrant, we should like to invite you to submit a short story for the 2019 competition.

  • Our theme this year is “Time”
  • The story length is 1,500 to 5,000 words
  • The closing date is midnight on Monday 8 July

You can enter online at https://hgwellscompetition.com/enter-the-competition

All other conditions that applied in 2018 are still relevant but do check on our website, hgwellscompetition.com. There, you will also find our 2018 shortlist along with videos of our successful writers reading their work. We shall be uploading a new shortlisted story each month. If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to read our authors’ work.

If you want to check out stories that have been successful in previous years, you can also buy our anthologies from 2012 onwards in Kindle or paperback format.

We look forward to receiving your story.
