• Theo Singleton, a member of the Brno Writers Group;
• Anne Johnson, the winner of this contest in 2021 and a local theater producer; and
• Lee Adams, the co-founder of both the Brno Writers Group and the Brno Short Story Writing Contest.
The jury will be instructed that the contest is focused on creating a story that includes the theme “Opening Up” in some significant way. The story is the most important aspect, including writing, originality, character development, and plot development. It is understood that most of the entrants will not be native English speakers and that, in fact, this may be their first attempt to write creatively in English. All entrants should endeavour to adhere to the rules of English; however, spelling and grammar will not be critical for success.
Brno Daily and the Brno Expat Centre are both media sponsors of the Brno Short Story Writing Contest.
The Jetveo Platform and App Builder (jetveo.io) is an in-kind sponsor.
