Event Details

The Psychometrics Centre is pleased to announce that the second Cambridge Creative Writing Competition is now open for submissions. Participants are asked to write three short pieces and everyone is welcome to submit. The winning entry will receive £500 and there are 5 runner-up prizes of £100 each. The competition is supported by a CJBS Behavioural Small Research Grant.

The first edition of the competition, held in June 2022, was a great success, with a total of 58 prizes (in the form of Amazon gift cards) being awarded. This included 9 first prizes, 15 second prizes and 34 third prizes.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
