Event Details

The Nordic English Writing Awards (NEWA) is a writing competition open to all aspiring writers in the Nordic region. English language fluency is generally very high in these countries and this award seeks to find and promote new voices. NEWA is an opportunity for Nordic voices to be heard in the English language.

Who can enter?

Any resident of the Nordic Region* that does not use English as their native language can enter the awards.

*The Nordic Region consists of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland, as well as the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

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.
