As you know, we hold Poetry, Short Story and Flash Fiction competitions throughout the year and with one of our vouchers you will be eligible to enter any of our comps. They come in denominations of £5, £10 and £15 allowing multiple entries, depending on the competition. You can purchase them by calling our offices on 0161 819 9922 up to 20th December.
