Love Letters to London returns for its third year with thousands of pounds in cash prizes

Dust off the keyboard or get tapping on your mobile, because there is more than £4,000 of prizes in the London Society’s free to enter writing competition “Love Letters to London”.

Now in its third year, this competition is open to everyone to celebrate our wonderful, fantastic, infuriating city in prose or poetry. Open to all ages, and to all writing styles – fiction, poetry, essays and reportage – whether you live in the capital or not. There are special categories for under 18s, as well as prizes for schools.

The theme this year is Love Letters to London of the Future.

What does your London of the future look like – what are your passions, hopes, dreams and aspirations for this most wonderful of cities?

The closing date for entries is midday (UK time) December 1st 2023, and prizes will be presented at an awards ceremony next Spring.

If you want to walk away with one of the four first prizes of £500 – and see your work published by the London Society – get writing your own ‘Love Letter to London’.
