How to Write for Competitions and Win!

Winning competitions can help you in many ways as a writer - raise your profile, help you be taken seriously, win some money and even bring you to the attention of an agent. You also get the chance to write a more literary or individual piece than if you were trying for publication.

Writing for competitions is different from writing for publication. Many of the same rules apply but there are certain aspects which you need to consider before sending off your entries.

Two of the UK's top competition judges - Iain Pattison and Alison Chisholm - share with you the secrets of success for entering competitions. Their check lists and guidelines will help you to avoid the most common mistakes made by novices, avoid disqualification and boost your chance of winning.

The course takes a comprehensive look at the world of writing competitions, including:

  • finding suitable competitions
  • submitting work like a professional
  • avoiding disqualification
  • coming up with fresh and exciting ideas

Alice Vinten Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2020

“All I knew when I joined up with The Writers Bureau is that I'd always wanted to write and never had the nerve to start. I've been an avid reader from an early age, and 'being a published writer' seemed like an unobtainable dream. The Writers Bureau opened my eyes to possibilities that I'd never considered before - writing for magazines, pitching for non-fiction books, and researching the writing industry. On the 18th April 2019, my memoir On the Line - Life and Death in the Metropolitan Police was published in paperback by Two Roads Books.”
