Prizes

Unlike other literary competitions that offer a big cash first prize and a book token for the second place we wanted to encourage writers’ development with our prizes and spread the love by rewarding more than just a few.  In 2013 there were twenty prizes up for grabs. Half for flash fiction, half for poetry.

2013 PRIZES

Joint prizes

All 20 winners were published in the award anthology alongside Lemn Sissay who hosted the award event. The anthology was produced by Myriad Editions & Kingston University Press and distributed by the latter. The platinum, gold, silver and bronze award winners were offered editorial support from Myriad Editions to have their winning entries put forward to the Quick Fictions App (in top 10 of The Sunday Times top 500 Apps list) and  Myriad Editions also published the platinum, gold, silver and bronze award winners entries on their website.

Writers’ development prizes do not have to be taken up but these cannot be exchanged for cash.
