Short story competition

    Do you love creative writing – and would you like to see your short story, written in English, printed in Spotlight magazine? Then why not enter our short-story competition? You could win a prize!

    If you’re a non-native English speaker, we’d love to read your work – and we’ll publish our favourite one in Spotlight 4/23.

    You can write about whatever you like, up to 1,000 words. Don’t worry about making mistakes: the winning story will be edited for publication by a professional fiction editor on our team.

    Send your story to by latest 5 December 2022 and you could win a meet & greet with Spotlight editor-in-chief Inez Sharp and a copy of the board game A weekend in New York.
