Ovacome Writing Competition

Event Details

Ovacome is the national ovarian cancer support charity. We are a strong community of many thousands of people, all working together with the aim of reducing isolation, sharing information, promoting knowledge and supporting anyone affected by ovarian cancer

Take part in the first ever Ovacome Creative Writing Competition for the chance to win some fantastic prizes! We are launching this competition to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and money for our ovarian cancer support services.

The competition is open to anyone in the UK over the age of 18. You can enter a short story with a maximum word count of 2,000 words.

The theme for the 2020 writing competition is ‘Overcoming’. This theme can be interpreted in many different ways (for example: overcoming fear, isolation, prejudice, set-backs – the possibilities are endless!). Your story doesn’t have to be about health or ovarian cancer.
