WriteInvite.co.uk - Short Story Competitions


Write Invite

WriteInvite is the umbrella term created by Rob Richardson in 2006 that covers a range of short story writing competitions incorporating different formats...

Live Short Story Evenings

The Live Short Story Evenings are held on the 1st Monday of every other month, meeting in the conservatory of Rosie’s Wine Bar, an attractive location to be found at 87 Elm Grove Southsea Hampshire PO5 1JF. The doors open at 7.30pm and the fun starts at 8pm!

Ten short stories, maximum 6 minutes each, are read aloud by the writers themselves or their chosen readers if preferred. The listeners, sitting cabaret-style around small tables, vote anonymously at the end of the evening for their top 3 stories, the writers of which will all win a cash prize.

There is a bar nearby and excellent, complementary nibbles are served in the break. The evenings aim to finish at approximately 10.15pm. Admission is £3 for listeners and £4 for readers. To book your place for a story slot email Rob Richardson with title and nature of story. We look forward to seeing you!

Dates for this event in 2015 are 2nd March, 4th May, 6th July, 7th September and 2nd November.

Out Write

OutWrite is a day out for writers which we organise 3 times a year. 2 mystery venues are chosen; one may be termed aesthetic, the other interesting. Here the writers immerse themselves in the surroundings and write for a limited time.

As in our other events, there is an anonymous vote taken on the stories read, and money will be won! A huge part of many people’s writing involves research, and also the need to be inspired through different environments. OutWrite addresses both these requirements.

To find out about the next Out Write event sign up below and details will be sent out accordingly. All placed must be booked in advance.
