Saveas Writers' International Writing Competition

Event Details

The SaveAs Writers’ International Writing Competition 2021 is open for entries of poetry and prose until 31st August, 2021.

2021 marks the centenary of T S Eliot’s visit to Margate, where he wrote part of The Waste Land while looking out on the sea from the Nayland Rock shelter.

To celebrate Eliot, his work and the views from our coastline, SaveAs Writers launch their annual international creative writing competition, this year asking for poems and short stories on the theme of Horizons. The theme can be literal, figurative, a celebration of views, a reflection on Eliot and his work (The Waste Land itself opened new horizons in poetry) or a broader take on the theme.

Theme: ‘Horizons’. This can be literal, figurative, a celebration of views, a reflection on T.S. Eliot and his work (The Wasteland opened new horizons in poetry) or a broader take on the theme.
