Competitions launched – with a brand new category
To mark our 24th anniversary we have launched a great new competition for 2016: Writing for Children. The stories will be judged by award-winning children’s writer Jeremy de Quidt whose most recent book The Feathered Man was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.
Our regular competitions also continue: the Hilly Cansdale prize will once again be awarded to the finest entry from a local poet, with Greta Stoddart judging all entries. And our ever popular Short Story Competition will be judged by Alison Moore whose work has been included in various anthologies including Best British Short Stories and Best British Horror.
Prizes in all categories: First £500, second £200 and third £100, plus the Wyvern Prize will be given to the best local short story author.
The deadline for all entries is 30 June 2016. So don’t delay; start writing!
