Bonnie Greer Stories to Read Aloud Competition
Alongside their international short story competition, Kingston Writing School are also excited to launch a local competition for Kingston residents and workers, and writers associated with the Writing School. The competition will celebrate stories that work when read aloud as well as on the page. It will be the first story competition to pick its final winners from live readings and we are thrilled that the distinguished award-winning writer, critic and Chancellor of Kingston University, Bonnie Greer, will be judge.
First Prize £1000 and two Runners Up Prizes of £250
Both competitions are open for entries from May 1st to June 30th.
Winning stories and shortlisted stories will be published in two competition anthologies, and winning writers will have the opportunity to have their work considered for publication by Kingston University Press.
Online submissions are encouraged and preferred. For more information on how to enter online please visit the link.
