Event Details

Entries are now being accepted for The Val Wood Prize for Creative Writing 2021: Now & Then

The overall theme of this year’s competition has been chosen to mark the end of lockdown and reflect times of positive change. 

 The competition, is open to anyone over 16 years of age. 

Entrants are free to write about whatever they wish as long as the theme is adhered to. Poetry will NOT be considered for the prize. 

Annually, the competition receives a staggering amount of entries from all over the world and we want to keep that up. However, this year we want to celebrate the best of local talent too, which is why we have split the competition so you can enter the category that best suits you, or both (depending on your postal address).
