This competition is to celebrate the best short stories out there. It is open to published and unpublished authors. Each of the ten shortlisted stories will be published on this site, with cash prizes. See the Competition page for more details. 

CAS, the title of this competition, stands for my late father, Christopher Assheton-Stones, who always encouraged my creativity.
