Kudos – for people who prize writing #86

‘Great to sit down with a coffee, and see what competitions and opportunities are available rather than trawl the internet, which feels too much like work’ (Lyn Fountain, Norwich Writers’ Circle)

Runs mainly from the end of January right up to mid March, and beyond in some cases –

 and loads of dough with The Biscuit Prize

Ver-ily there’s some tasty stuff around:
old favourites from Southport,Torriano, Verulam, Ware, Writeonsite,
and Frogmore Papers, Kent & Sussex Poetry Society,
Northampton Literature Group,
along with David Burland, John DrydenAble Muse, and all.

There’s many a new Challenge, plus other good causes & matters medical:
The Hippocrates Prize and Swale Life

You could of course just go Larkin about, having adventures with Rider Haggard,
or going great guns with The Mayor of Enfield’s Poetry Competition.

Maybe get yourself to the Greek … Writer’s Retreat, courtesy of Limnisa,
or invent a love story for WritersReign,
inspired by ‘Words and Ideas’ from Words by The Water

And if you think the answer lies in the soil, there’s Gardener’s World,
Brightoncow, Thynks, Jim Baen and Verity Bargate
and lots, lots more to unearth right here…
