VOTING is now OPEN for the Made Up Words Short Story Competition 2016
After reading more than 100 entries from 17 countries, we have whittled the list down to our Readers’ Choice finalists. Our original plan was to present three stories to be voted on by you, the reader, but during our selection process it became clear that our four editors of Made Up Words, were each championing a certain story. What to do? Give you all four, of course!
You can see what our editors have said about their favourite stories here
The winner will be up to you!

daCunha is a human-scale experiment in curiosity and discovery
Sharing ideas that offer cultural insight and disruptive thinking. We intentionally slow down the flow of stories, ideas, and conversations so that you have time to read and be inspired by the different connections you make.
Building a community that believes in quality and craftsmanship
Exclusive and exciting, bringing you alternative ideas and different approaches from writers, artists, film makers, musicians and award-winning authors around the world.
New connections and intelligent insight
In a world full of followers, it’s your curiosity that sets you apart. Let it lead and offer you a different way to view the world.
Stories from around the world
Society and business: big issues, personally told… inspiring action and a new approach.
Sobremesa is being reimagined as something altogether different than a publication. We’re not exactly sure what that means, but we are hoping to launch in early September. Stay tuned.
