Have you got a story to tell? The Jersey Evening Post is now taking submissions for its 2017 Writing Competition, run in association with the Jersey Festival of Words and sponsored by Rathbones. The standard of entry for past competitions has been high, and once again the judges are looking forward to seeing what local writers have to offer.
Winners receive prizes of up to £100 and will also see their work published in a souvenir supplement in the JEP. Also, all winning entries will be read out to an audience at a prize giving event during the Jersey Festival of Words in October. The categories are as follows:
(500 – 2,000 words)
This is for all genres and styles but we hope to see some compelling, page-turning tales.
There are four winners’ prizes of £100 for each age-group, runner- up prizes of £50 and third-place prizes of £25.
The age categories are: 6-8, 9-13, 14-16 and 17+.
(maximum 127 words)
We are looking for snappy, clever writing about anything at all.
This is open to writers of all ages, but there will be just one winner of £100, one runner-up prize of £50 and one third-place prize of £25.
All submissions or queries should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, age, address and category you wish to enter. The closing date is midnight on Thursday 31 August. So get writing!
