The British Council in Turkey has launched a short story competition with the theme of 'diversity'

The competition aims to build a bridge between Turkish and UK writing professionals and create a platform to showcase work by UK and Turkish writers. Winning stories will be published on a new British Council digital platform alongside stories by writers Yekta Copin, Seray ┼×ahiner, Sandra Alland and Leone Ross.

The winning writer will receive £300 and their story will be published online, translated into Turkish and accompanied by a specially commissioned illustration.

Stories may be up to 1,500 words and should be broadly themed on the concept of diversity, inclusion and equality. Writers entering the competition should be early-career writers (ie may have had single stories published, but should not have published a full collection or novella).

There is no entry fee.

The closing date is 31 December.
