With just 2.5 days to go a mistake has been revealed on the rules page for the Hysteria Writing Competition.
The guidelines were correct, the rules had been badly worded – my mistake I’m afraid!
So, the error which said that all entrants in the competition granted me a non-exclusive right to use their work for publicity purposes, has been corrected to the category winners granting me the non-exclusive right.
What this means in practice is that each year I interview the winners and publish their winning entries on the website. Of course, they are also published alongside their fellow short listed entrants, in the anthology.
I don’t know if this has put anyone off, but if it has I can only apologise – profusely.
Have fun, and if you have any other questions please holler.
