Ireland's Own Writing Competition

In Association with Original Writing

Ireland’s Own is pleased to announce details of our 2009 Writing Competitions (this year again in association with the self-publishing company Original Writing). Entries are invited to vie for €2200 in prizemoney, and the opportunity to be published in a special anthology next year.

From the time we were first published in November 1902, it has always been our policiy to encourage writers, professional and amateur, and much of our magazine each week bears testimony to this.

The Open Short Story section is open to all and carries a prizefund of €1000 - a first prize of €600; second prize of €200 and two runners-up prizes of €100.

The Beginners Short Story section is restricted to those who have never had a story published before. It carries a first prize of €400 and three runners-up prizes of €100.

Entries for both short story sections should be of approx. 2000 words, reflect the ethos of Ireland’s Own and be of a non-experimental nature.

Occasionally, stories may need some slight adjustments to comply with our requirements; we reserve the right to make such changes. Entry in the competitions is deemed an acceptance of this condition.
