Writing Competition




Are you a budding Jilly Cooper or the new Dick Francis? Have you always dreamed of being an equestrian author? Well here is your chance to enter your equestrian story in a new Equestrian Short Story Competition sponsored by Haynet and Lavender & White Equestrian Publishing.

The winning story will have their story published in a form of an e-book which can be purchased and downloaded by the public with all the profits going to the wonderful equine charity World Horse Welfare. This could be the start of a new chapter in your life writing fiction in the equestrian world. You can let your imagination run wild as long as the subject matter has an equestrian theme. The sponsors would like to see stories that have an equestrian background rather solely about just being a horse. Maybe a crime novel set in the horse world or perhaps a fantasy novel or an equestrian Harry Potter? How about an equestrian romance which is ideal for the Jilly Cooper addicts!

So if you have the plot in your head and characters being formed, please visit Haynet for further details on how to enter this exciting equestrian short story competition. The competition is running for three months giving author’s time to pen, edit and proof read their equine stories.

Closing date for entries is 5pm Monday 11 August 2014. The best stories will be put forward to the judges who will be responsible for compiling a shortlist of five outstanding short equestrian stories. The winning story will be chosen and two runners up selected.

Judges, Lavender & White Equestrian Publishing have a wealth of publishing knowledge and experience in equestrian journalism spanning decades. Haynet is a well known equestrian blogging network with members from all over the world writing about their lives with horses.

With the launch of this joint venture Haynet and Lavender and White Equestrian Publishing are looking forward to finding a new equestrian author to join the literary world!
