·         Poetry (up to 300 words) and fiction (up to 2,000 words)

·         This year’s theme is HOME

   Deadline: 2nd June 2019

There is over £10k in cash and development prizes on offer, and our chief judge/showcase host this year is Kerry Hudson.

They are particularly interested in applications from young writers (18 -25) this year, but all applications are welcome.
