Event Details

The competition is organized by The Month, an international arts and literature magazine, based in Ireland.

The Moth Nature Writing Prize aims to encourage and celebrate the art of nature writing. It is awarded annually to an unpublished piece of prose or poetry which best combines exceptional literary merit with an exploration of the writer’s relationship with the natural world.

There is a 4,000 maximum word limit.

Entries must be entirely the work of the entrant and must never have been published.

The competition is open to anyone over the age of 16.

The judge is Kathleen Jamie.

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.
