Summer Creative Writing Competition

The theme is New Experiences

Enter either a story, poem or an article. One submission per student.

  1. 1st Prize is a £50 voucher of your choice (one prize awarded per category).
  2. Writing will be judged on it’s originality and use of language. 600 word limit.
  3. Attend Learning Champions on Thursdays (from 12.30 at Kingsland Road) for support with your piece.

This is a fantastic opportunity to show off your creative writing skills for a chance to win a £50 voucher but to also have a piece of writing on our website and social media platforms. This is also a great project to have on your CV!

We will also be hosting an awards event to announce the winners of the competition. This will allow the students and tutors to come together to celebrate the pieces you will be creating.

You must keep your work under 600 words and final work must be entered by Monday 12th June. Please attend the Learning Champions workshop on Thursdays if you need support or inspiration.

The competition is open until Monday 12th June so make sure you either hand your entries into Catherine or email her at
