Speaking of competitions and prizes, as we were yesterday, Fish Publishing have just announced another round of offerings.
The launch of the Fish Short Histories Anthology, and the prize-giving for the winners of the Short Historical Fiction Prize, will be held in London on Sunday 5 March.
Fish also run a one-page short story competition, and this year's was due to close on 4 March. However, this has now been extended to the end of March.
Also closing at the end of March is this year's new competition, The Fish International Poetry Prize. The winning entries of this competition will be published alongside the winners of this year's Fish Short Story Prize, and the One-page Prize winning entries, in the 2006 Fish Anthology. (The top five winners also receive cash prizes.)
The Fish International Short Story Prize, mentioned immediately above, has a good reputation and is run on an annual basis. The winner of the 2005 competition will be announced shortly.
