Welcome to WriteStars

"A New Life"  short-story competition ...

We have a winner!

Congratulations to Heather Russell.

And to the runners up - in alphabetical order - Dorothy Cox and Ellen Evers.

Read their winning entries here.

Each entry included - as requested and in various ways - red nail polish, a chestnut tree, and a pathway, and we left the interpretation of the latter up to the writers. The result was a terrific selection of creative stories which made it difficult to choose the winners. We appreciate all the work and careful craft that has gone into each entry and thank all who took the time to enter.

For more details and the full shortlist Click here - and scroll down.

Eleven writers were selected for the longlist, and it's been so hard to lose five of these. Click here to see the longlist, too, with a very brief note on each story.

Thank you to all who entered.

The first prize is: £100 cash; a bottle of personalised champagne; and a free critique of up to 1,000 words of the winner's work. Two runners-up will each get a writing-related mystery prize.

£1 from each entry fee is sent to Children in Crisis - the literacy charity, to go towards their brilliant work in Africa and Afghanistan.
