YSJ are hosting a creative writing competition for all students and staff at York St John University. It is a great opportunity to have your work published in the university anthology and begin establishing a name for yourself as a budding new writer.
We want submissions for both prose and poetry, and there will be a winner for each category!
The writing itself must concern York. It can be ANYTHING to do with York though, so there is plenty of scope. It could be to do with history, culture, politics or just a funny anecdote; the sky is the limit.
Prose pieces must not exceed 1,500 words.
Poems must not exceed 50 lines (equivalent to 1,000 words.
All submissions must be sent before midnight on March 25th.
Send submissions to YSJCompetitions@outlook.com and make sure to title the file with your name.
Also include a cover sheet with your name, email address and course of study so we can get in touch if you win.
The winner’s will be announced by the 31st of March and will automatically be given a place in the YSJ Creative Writing Anthology alongside creative writing graduates and MA student’s work , which is due for publication later this year.
Please note: If you have already submitted a piece for the Anthology, you must not use that same piece in the writing competition. Also, any song lyrics or other plagiarised submissions will be disqualified.
Best of luck, YSJ Writing Competition.
