Event Details

We’re looking for the best SHORT STORY of no more than 5,000 words. Every Globe Soup short story competition features a different country, which all participants must set their story in. You only find out which country after you enter! Entries into the Globe Soup Summer 2020 Short Story competition can be written in any genre or style.

Globe Soup is a travel website, does my story have to be about travel?

Absolutely not. Globe Soup is about so much more than travel. We’re about all forms of creativity inspired by the world around us. We encourage participants NOT to write about travel for any of our FICTION competitions. Your short story can be about anything!

I’m worried I won’t have been to or won’t know much about the chosen country, should I still enter?

Absolutely! It’s up to you how much the setting features in your story. Consider the chosen country as a point of inspiration. A little research will probably provide a huge spark and give you bountiful ideas for your story. We can’t wait to see where this competition takes you!
