Autumn Writing Prize

The Autumn Writing Prize is now closed for submissions

Thank you to the 141 writers from around the world who have submitted an entry to the prize. The work is thrillingly eclectic and our judges are excited to get started.

Our judges will select four winners who will be published as our featured writers for October. Each winner will receive £50 in prize money.

We are thrilled to have our inimitable co-founder, Professor Preti Taneja, back as our head judge. Preti is supported by: deputy editor Isabel Brookes; Victoria Gosling, author of the brilliant novel Before the Ruins; the hugely talented US-based writer, storyteller, and performer Jay Délise; and Visual Verse publisher and co-founder Kristen Harrison.

We aim to announced and publish the winners on Thursday 6th October.

Good luck, writers! The image is the starting point, the text is up to you.
