Comedy Short Story

Bring out yer shorts! If you are an unpublished OR published short story witty author and prefer a briefer encounter with witty words (5000 – 15000) we want to read it! The winner gets a nice little cash prize and will be published along with all the shortlisted entries in (working title cos we like it so much) ‘FUNNY SHORTS’ - an anthology of witty women’s writing, published by funny-friendly publisher Farrago. These selected funnies will be showcased in the company of CWIP’s much loved witty authors who also happen to be our best-selling, best loved besties (established, alumni and witty authors in the land!)   

See our short story entry criteria for more shorty pants information.

Unpublished Comedy Novel

If you’re a witty author whose manuscript is waiting to be tweaked, written, finished or discreetly disinfected - we want to hear from you. The rewards are huge, and the risk is nil. It doesn’t matter when you wrote it, if your work has the potential to make the reader incapacitated with hysteria, we need to read it. We’d love a few thousand words from you first, and then for you to be ready with the actual manuscript.
