Oxfordshire Libraries are excited to announce the launch of our 8th eBook Short Story Competition. The annual competition is a chance to discover new writers, stories, and voices from around Oxfordshire.

The winner from each of three categories will see their short story published as an eBook on our Overdrive platform, from where it will be available to be borrowed and read from anywhere. Previous winners have written some of the most borrowed eBooks in our collection, so this is the perfect time for new writers to take the opportunity to get published. The competition aims to inspire writers to express themselves and tell their own original stories.

The age categories are:

  • Children: 7 – 11 years old
  • Young adult: 12 – 17 years old
  • Adult: 18 years old and above

The competition is free to enter and entries can be submitted from Monday 6 December 2021. The closing date is Sunday 27 February 2022.
