HISSAC: The Highlands and Islands Short Story Association was founded in 2004 by author Clio Gray with the main aim of encouraging new writers and giving them their confidence in their work. Along with running an Annual Open Short Story Competition, HISSAC offers the chance for writers to get in touch with each other in order critique and support each other's work; by joining HISSAC you will become a member of a worldwide writing group, with numerous other members to contact and opportunities to get unbiased feedback on your work. HISSAC also runs a mentorship scheme designed to give the criticism and editorial feedback needed for novels and short stories to reach publication standard. Full details of the competition, membership and mentorships can be found on the website.
