Event Details

Writing from your own life takes courage. Many people journal in private, but refining a piece of life writing so that it conveys a snippet of your reality is a real art. At Beechmore Books, we love to celebrate and support writers, so we are running a free-to-enter competition for writers worldwide.

Send us a short piece of your best life writing, which we define as any creative prose with the essence of truth and a focus on the author’s personal experience. Submissions can be up to 1000 words.

Entries must be previously unpublished, online or in print. Entries may be submitted elsewhere, at the same time, but if your entry wins a prize or is accepted for publication before our announcement of results, please let us know.

Copyright of any competition entries remains with the author, but Beechmore Books reserves the unrestricted right to publish the winning and runner-up entries, and any subsequently rewarded pieces, on its website and in any related material for PR purposes.
