The new competition from Bloomsbury and the National Literacy Trust invites unpublished writers to re-imagine traditional fairy tales

Writers are invited to send short stories aimed at children aged 8 to 12 that give a well-known fairy tale a modern twist. The winning entries will be published by Bloomsbury Children's Publishing in an ebook anthology whose royalties will be donated to the National Literacy Trust. The writers of the chosen stories will each win £200.

Stories for the Short Story Prize 2017 should be between 2,000 and 4,000 words. Also include a 350-word synopsis themed around reimagining fairy tales.

There is an early-bird entry fee of £15 for writers entering before 31 March. The entry fee after that will be £30, and the closing date is 25 June.
