Short Story and Poetry Anthology

Even though we can’t have a Festival this year, we can have an Anthology!
We are inviting submissions from writers of all ages to submit either a 500 word or less short story or a 30 line or less poem.
Materials must be suitable for general publication. 
The short story can be about any theme or topic, although we expect that many of you will want to reflect these unusual times.
The poetry should be closely linked to Lockdown, or to some other aspect of the pandemic.
The reward is inclusion in this years Anthology, which you will then be able to buy off Amazon. The price will include a £2 donation to the funding of next years Festival.
We have recently extended the submission deadline to August 23rd.
We look forward with great interest to your submissions, although we may have to be selective if the number of entries is high.
