My Writing Journey Competition

web site

Deadline: May 31, 2020

This writing competition is free to enter and open to writers from around the world.

Write and submit a 600-word piece on the theme: The best writing tip I’ve ever received.

We’ll publish the best piece in our newsletter and on our blog – plus the winner receives $200 (R2 000 or £100).

 Read the competition rules far below.

  • Send your story to
  • Only e-mail submissions are accepted, with stories attached as Word Documents.
  • Mark your entry clearly with the subject line: My Writing Journey Competition.
  • Each story must have a unique title. Do not use the theme as your title.
  • Use a font such as Arial or Times New Roman, size 12 or more. Use 1.5 or double spacing between lines. We prefer a clear break (i.e. open line) between paragraphs, rather than indenting.
