Page is Printed - Creative writing competition

Thu 1 Jan, 12:00am

Pens at the ready, our annual creative writing competition is back!

Write in any genre: prose, poetry, script, a confession, a love letter, a list… be bold, be imaginative, but contain your entry to just one side of A4.

Our panel of judges will be looking for something that dares to be different and most importantly something that comes to life when it is read aloud.

The deadline for the creative writing competition is Sun 22 Jan.
