Applications call for TU Dublin Short Story Competition 2020

The TU Dublin Short Story Competition is run by the Library, Technological University Dublin [TU Dublin] – Tallaght Campus, in conjunction with South Dublin County Council, in association with the Red Line Book Festival, and is free to enter. Entries must be in short story format (a short work of fiction) between 1,500 and 2,000 words long and should be completely the entrant’s own work written in English (high standard), original, unpublished. There is no restriction on theme or style, however, the planned 2020 anthology will be called ‘Creation, Cosmos, & Caboodle’ and we are looking for strong stories that (even loosely) reflect this title.
