Tips For Entering The Award

 

  1. Keep to the word length stated. Your entry will be automatically disqualified if your article is not between 700 and 1400 words.

  2. Stick to the subject stated.

  3. Apart from these two points you have total freedom on how you approach this project. You can write it in any style: humorous, factual, true-life story, serious, sad, as an interview ...

  4. Be creative. Remember, you are crafting an article for publication. The quality of the writing and how the article flows is an important part of the selection process – so always keep this in mind.

  5. You can write in either the first or third person.

  6. But most important of all, enjoy writing about yourself and your achievements. You don't often get the chance to reflect on how far your writing has come and shout about your success from the roof tops.

Good Luck With Your Entry!
 
 

Theresa Gooda Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2021

“I began my first Writers Bureau course (Comprehensive Creative Writing) in 2007. Having more than covered the course fees from published pieces I have never looked back. Initially my ambitions were to get going. I knew I wanted to be a writer, I just didn’t know how to go about it, or, if I’m honest, quite what I wanted to write. Since, I have gradually blended a teaching career with writing, first with articles and short stories, then increasing the writing commitment dramatically when I secured an agent in 2016 to ghostwrite a series of memoirs. This year I have undertaken The Art of Writing Poetry course to really hone my skills in what I now realise is a genre I love - and have already had my first poems published.”
