The 2020 Creative Future Writers’ Award is now open for submissions.
Founded in 2013, the Creative Future Writers’ Award is the UK’s only national writing competition and development programme for under-represented writers. They showcase talented writers who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, identity or other social circumstance.
Prizes are awarded for both poetry and short fiction, including cash and professional writing development opportunities, publication in an anthology, and a high profile awards ceremony at the Southbank Centre in London as part of London Literature Festival (TBC).
2020 judges are Kerry Hudson, Anthony Anaxagorou, Aki Schilz of The Literary Consultancy, and the CFWA 2020 Writer In Residence (TBA).
This year’s theme is ‘Tomorrow‘. Submissions are open for:
- Poetry (one poem up to 42 lines)
- Short fiction (up to 2,000 words)
Deadline is 31 May 2020.
