Competitions entry deadline extension

SENTINEL LITERARY QUARTERLY POETRY & SHORT STORY COMPETITIONS
January 2011

ENTRY DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 7TH JANUARY 2011

The Sentinel Literary Quarterly Poetry & Short Story Competitions for January 2011
originally had a deadline of 20th December, 2010.

We have received some e-mails and phone calls from entrants alerting us to the fact they have sent their work but can't be sure they will be delivered before the 20th. We usually suggest that entrants do it online, but there are still so many who simply prefer the good old way - paper, envelopes, stamps and a walk to the Post Office. Some cannot use the Internet, or just don't trust the web, even though it is easier and cheaper for them. We like to include everyone.

With adverse weather and Christmas mail causing postal delays, we have decided to extend the receive by date of the competitions to 7th January, 2011. This 3-week extension should give all entrants ample time to get their work in. This extension also applies to online entries which must now be received by midnight on January 7th. If you have already sent in your entry, please ignore this message.

Remember, the competitions are for previously unpublished poems and short stories on any subject, in any style up to 40 lines long (poems) or 1,500 words long (stories)

Prize money is £150, £60, & £40 plus first publication in Sentinel Champions print magazine.

Entry fees:

£3 per poem, £12 for 5 poems
£5 per story, £9 for 2 stories, £12 for 3 stories
