Hay Festival Write For Change

Event Details

As we countdown to the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP–26, 1–12 November 2021 in Glasgow, we’re asking you to join us and WRITE FOR CHANGE. Our ambition is to create an anthology of public works to inspire a better world, but we need your help (and there are prizes to be won)…

Throughout spring and summer 2021, we’re inviting you to submit short (100–500 word) pieces of fiction, non-fiction or poetry inspired by our opportunity for renewal. Over the coming weeks, our campaign ambassadors will offer short writing prompts to spark your creativity, which you will find here and over on our social feeds.

Submissions will be showcased on our Write for Change digital map, in an upcoming digital anthology, and automatically entered into a prize draw to win a stack of 20 Green Ideas books from our friends at Penguin.
