Event Details

The Solstice Nature Prize is our annual showcase for young writers, seeking imaginative short stories and provocative poems with prizes on offer for winners in two age groups 11-13 and 14-17. Inspired by the gradual decline of the UK’s bird population, the theme for this competition is Fight for Flight.

1st Prize in both age categories is £100 cash and web publication of the winning entry. Five Highly Commended runners-up per age category and one regional winner per age category will receive goody bags and online publication also.

Submission is free, and the deadline is the 31st of October. We’d love to receive entries of up to 40 lines of poetry or short stories of up to 500 words.
