MOLP3 invites entries of short stories up to 4,000 words and poems up to 50 lines. The theme is open. All entries must be original and unpublished.

There are prizes in each category of: first, £1,000; second, £300; third, £100, and two highly commended, £50. The winning and shortlisted entries will be included in the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize Anthology.

Concerns for sustainability and the environment are at the heart of Magic Oxygen Publishing, and Magic Oxygen will plant a tree for each entry in Bore, Kenya. Writers entering MOLP3 will be emailed the GPS coordinates of their tree once the competition has closed. The entry fees will also help to find the construction of another classroom at Kundeni Primary School in the same community.

The closing date to enter the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize 2016/17 is 31 December.
