Enter our Writing Competition!

We have just launched the first ever competition aimed at finding the best new examples of “popular” digital fiction!  Our “Opening Up Digital Fiction” aims to discover digital fiction that appeals to mainstream audiences. We are accepting submissions in English and in Welsh and looking for works by all kinds of writers from rookies to veterans.
