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.

How Will the How to Write for Competitions - and Win! course help me?
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
  • how to impress the judges (remember the writers of this course are seasoned short story judges Iain Pattison and Alison Chisholm, so you really are getting insider information!)
  • how to spot and avoid scams

Annemarie Munro Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2022

"I have seen my writing journey as an adventure: What can I write? What am I best at? What new aspects of writing can I discover and contribute towards? I have welcomed the wide range of modules covering different types of writing, challenging me to try new aspects in style and content, pushing me gently outside my comfort zone with encouragement.

"I signed up for the course in December 2020 as a Christmas present to myself and I started the first module in January 2021. I have had eight pieces published: three paid earning £1080 and a star letter where I won a £250 hotel voucher."
