A few Irish deadlines…



There’s a few things coming up – so time to dish off these reams of stories you’ve been sitting on!

The Stinging Fly accepts postal submissions until the end of June (and, for a flash fiction showcase, by email only on Saturday June 22nd for pieces under 500 words) This issue will be edited by Nuala Ní Chonchúir.

The RTÉ Guide / Penguin Ireland competition : accepts stories under 2000 words until July 5th. If it is like previous years, the winner gets published in RTÉ Guide and shortlisted writers are invited to a talk with publishers and authors in Dublin. (It seems to be one of these competition which the organisers try to keep secret from potential entrants – so thanks Kate Dempsey and her Emerging Writer blog for the info!)

Crannóg will be open for submissions for the month of July (under 2000 words)

The Sean O’Faolain Prize closes on July 31st.  €2000 for the winning story (under 3000 words), €15 entry fee
