Short Story Competition

The Source Arts Centre

Thurles Library

Tipperary Libraries are running their short story competition again this year, in conjunction with their ever popular “Tipperary Reads Festival,” latter supported by a €1,500 grant from the Arts Council.

The competition, which is open, not just to adults, but also to Senior Cycle secondary school students, can be written on any theme, depending on the writers own creative juices at the time of writing.

Your story must strictly be between 2,000 and 3,000 words maximum and very importantly all entries must be the original work of the author.

There will be one prize of €200 for the best story, with the winners name being announced during Stuart Neville’s visit to Tipperary Libraries in November.

Stories may be submitted by email to or sent as hard copy to any local branch of Tipperary Libraries.

Closing Date: Closing date for submissions is 01/11/2013.
Further Info: For further details drop into your local library or simply Telephone  0504- 29720.
