The Yellow Room Short Story Competition closes on 20th March, and we've hardly had any entries! I'm just hoping there's enough in the kitty to pay the cash prizes. Many small press magazines, including The Yellow Room, rely on a percentage of these competition fees for running costs, so it's great when there's a big entry. If you have a short story ready to send out, please could I ask if you'd consider entering it in the competition? The entry fee is £4 which is a lot less than some competitions, and if you're a competent writer, then you stand a good chance of a prize. Please see the website (www.theyellowroom-magazine.co.uk) for further details. Tell as many of your friends or your writers' group about The Yellow Room Competition as you can! I still have copies of Issue 1 to sell, too. The price is £5.50 per copy, cheques made payable to J M Derrick and sent to: 1 Blake Close, Bilton, Rugby CV22 7LJ. Issue 2 of The Yellow Room comes out in April/May.
