So, it’s with great pleasure that I can now reveal the overall category winners of this year’s Hysteria Writing Competition. All three winning entries are featured alongside the other nine finalists in their category in Hysteria 6, the anthology of 30 short-listed entries.
Win a free copy of Hysteria 6 this year’s cover competition. I’m really pleased to unveil this year’s anthology cover. Every year the cover has been inspired by one of our three overall category winners. They still don’t know who they are, but perhaps one of them might recognise their entry through the picture.
Although entries to the Hysteria Writing Competition close on 31st August each year, the work to complete the competition is just beginning for the competition judges and organisers. As people have often emailed to find out what happens when their entry has gone in, I thought it might be useful to give you a brief run down of what happens when a writing competition ends and the actions we then take:
Ta da …. and another drum roll please … it gives me great pleasure to be able to announce the overall Hysteria Writing Competition 2016 winners for each category. Their wins are very well deserved and perfectly capture some simple insights into the lives of women today.
It’s time to unveil this year’s Hysteria anthology cover image. As you know, each anthology cover takes inspiration from one of our three overall winners, and this year is no exception.
.. and drum roll please …..
Well, it’s finally time to reveal our top ten Hysteria 2016 finalists in each category. The overall winners will be announced when the anthology is published at the end of November/early December.
The Hysteria Writing Competition 2016 is now open to entries and it will close at 11:59pm on 31st August 2016.
Finally, after a short delay, we now have our list of winners for the Hysteria Writing Competition 2014. I am so pleased to say that the standard was, as usual, exceptionally high and our judges all said how much they enjoyed reading the variety of entries sent through.
I’d also like to give you a sneak preview of the Hysteria 3 anthology cover. Hysteria 3 contains all ten winning entries from each category, together with some excellent advice about entering writing competitions from a number of our judges from this year and last.
The manuscript is now in production and Hysteria 3 is currently available to order through the Hysteria website and on Amazon Kindle.
Welcome to the May Hysteria Writing Competition newsletter. I don’t know what your expectations are about things like entries and the amount of competition, but at the moment we’ve only a tiny number of entries so the chances of winning are extremely high indeed.
