Our 2018 creative writing competition is now closed for entries. 

About our 2018 competition

Our 2018 competition is once again supported by Specsavers.

We welcomed poems and short stories on all aspects of caring, particularly on the theme of ‘keeping well, keeping connected’. 

We are really pleased that Cheryl Moskowitz will be judging the competition for the fifth year running. Cheryl is a poet, novelist, translator, and a facilitator of writing for children and adults.

‘Well done on another lovely creative writing competition. It is such a great event for us all to get close to the real emotions of other carers.

‘Having sent in my 2 poems and not really expecting anything, I was so thrilled to have both poems included in the first anthology.’

‘Personal stories rooted in reality of caring. Lovely!’

‘The quality of the writing was wonderful, and I love that there was such a range of people, from experienced published writers to people who are new to writing.’

The winning and commended poems and stories will be announced soon and we will then produce an anthology of these, plus selected entries chosen by our staff, volunteers and trustees. We also plan to hold another celebration event for the competition and will celebrate the winning entries in regional and local media across the UK.

The first prize in each category is £100 in high street vouchers and £125 in Specsavers eyecare vouchers.
