Event Details

Sponsored by the University Centre Grimsby, our annual writing competition attracts entries from 27 different countries.

This year’s competition theme, SURVIVAL, is intended to inspire, not restrict, suggesting anything from an environmental crisis, a zombie apocalypse, a broken relationship, or just a bad day at the office. We’re excited to read your interpretations.

Alongside cash prizes for winners, shortlisted entries in the short story and poetry category receive worldwide publication, plus a Televised Awards Ceremony.
