I run the Best of Times Short Story Competitions twice a year: once in Autumn and once in Spring. I advertise them to writers' groups and on Facebook. - C. A. Broadribb.

The Best of Times Short Story Competition

Do you have a great sense of humour?

Want to show off your talent and possibly win a prize?

Maybe have your story displayed here, to share with the world?

And, of course, have your name added to the list of winners?

Then you've come to the right place!

The Best of Times short story competitions are run twice a year.
