Will Mitchell won first place in the Writers of the Future competition for the third quarter of 2011. His story will appear in the WotF anthology for 2011 with the other 11 winners. In addition, he will be jetting off to Los Angeles in April 2012 to claim his prize and participate in the awards ceremony. Congratulations Will!
If you’re inspired by Will’s success, you can read the rules for the contest here. It runs every quarter and is open to “amateur writers” (see the rules for the definition of this). Winners receive considerable cash prizes, entry is free and entrants retain all publication rights, so what have you got to lose?
