We’re very excited to announce the first GPUTC writing competition!
It’s open to students of all year groups, and you can submit any format or genre of writing. Showcase your best work!
Deadline: Friday January 18th
What can I submit?
Stories (or parts of stories); essays; reviews; poetry; articles; blogs… any format you like!
You can write on any genre or topic (with reason: keep it college-age appropriate).
No more than 3,500 words per submission, and a maximum of two submissions per person.
How do I submit?
Email Lex Avis via your college email account.
Your submission should be as a Word document — please do not put your name on the document, as they will be judged without names for fairness.
Who are the judges?
Lex Avis, David Bisley, Steve Coleby, Anne-Marie Wilson, Karen Hancock-Brewer, Richard Green, Debbie Lenton and Zahid Akbar.
What are the judges looking for?
“Passion, consideration and effort! A sense that you care about your writing and what you’re writing.” – Lex
“Where passion and enthusiasm emanates from the page like the crescendo at the Bellagio!” – Steve
“I am impressed by writing that uses good Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation, also good use of the whole Lexicon of English words that are available.” – Richard
