Europe’s leading crime fiction festival, the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, Harrogate and Transdev in Harrogate, part of one of the largest public transport operators in Europe, have joined creative forces this summer to bring two exclusive opportunities to readers and writers in North and West Yorkshire.
36stories Short Crime Story Competition
The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival and Transdev in Harrogate’s ’36 Stories’ short crime story competition is now closed. The winner has been chosen and will be announced in the Harrogate Advertiser on Thursday 19 July.
The quality of the entries has been phenomenal and we received 36 Stories not just from Leeds Harrogate, Ripley and Ripon but from all over the UK and even from overseas! Huge thanks to all who took the time to enter. It has been extremely hard to pick a winner. If you entered and haven’t already heard from us, then we’re sorry that you haven’t been successful this time round but hope the enjoyed the 36 story challenge anyway.
