CAMPUS – Cambridge Publishing Society – is having its first ever creative writing competition! 2015 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; to celebrate we are asking for entries in three age categories: 0–11, 12–17, and Adults.
All submissions must be original and previously unpublished; they must be inspired by Carroll's masterpiece. Entries can be poetry or prose, and no more than 400 words; or they can be on a single sheet of A4, which can have a single (original) illustration.
For each category, winners will receive £40, with second prizes of £10. Runners-up may collect books, for their age group, kindly donated by Heffers.
Entries have to be emailed to email@example.com or handed in (giving contact details) at Heffers bookshop information desk by 15th June 2015. Please state age category.
Shortlisted entries will be published in an ebook.
Please support this exciting new venture! Email all the writers and teachers you know with the link to this page – they don't have to be based in Cambridge. Attach the poster, too, which you can download here. And please print it out and put it up.
Many thanks to UIT Cambridge / Green Books of Cambridge for their generous sponsorship, and to Imogen, Daniela and Nora for all their hard work, imagination and general chutzpah!
