Call for Entries: The Aesthetica Creative Writing Competition
The Aesthetica Creative Writing Competition 2013 are now open for entries, and I thought that you might be interested in submitting some work!
We are looking for imaginative pieces of writing that push the boundaries of two categories: Poetry and Fiction. The Creative Writing Competition, now in its sixth year, offers both existing and aspiring writers the chance to showcase their work to a wider international audience. Submissions previously published elsewhere are accepted.
Entry is £10 and the deadline for submissions is 31 August.
The Winner of each category will receive £500 prize money, publication in the Aesthetica Creative Writing Annual, a complimentary copy of the Annual and a selection of books from competition partners.
Visit www.aestheticamagazine.com/creativewriting for more information and register your entry today!
Submission Guidelines:
  • Fiction entries should be no more than 2,000 words each
  • Poetry entries should be no more than 40 lines each
  • Both Fiction and Poetry entries should be written in English
It's not a NWUK competition but you might be interested.

Off to the Palace

New Writers UK author Susan Beecroft is having a wonderful time with her children’s book Teddy goes to Buckingham Palace. The book - launched at our 2012 festival and featuring illustrations by fellow NWUK member Howard Barton – attracted the interest of St. James's Palace and they’ve placed an order. The Royal Collection Enterprise are going to sell copies in the Buckingham Palace shop!

Susan is now working on a story that she’s been commissioned to write for the Freemasons, in aid of their 'Teddies for loving care ' appeal.

On Saturday June 8 between 11am and 3pm, Susan is signing copies of Teddy goes to Buckingham Palace at Waterstone’s Nottingham. Come along.
