Our writing competitions are open to anyone who has a story to tell. We are a platform that celebrates and supports the literary arts, so our competitions are designed to promote new work and writers, while offering the winners valuable support. Submit your best work today and see where your writing can take you! 

All our competitions are judged by experts in their field who published novelists, playwrights and poets and/or Postgraduates in the literary arts.
