Creative writing competition: The Totally Free Best of the Bottom Drawer Global Writing Prize 2021


06 July 2021
The competition from the Black Spring Press is inviting entries of literally anything that could be published in book form

Black Spring Press, which is part of Eyewear Publishing, is looking for something that might be a bit strange, rushed, risky, ahead of its time – the sort of manuscript or document that tends to stay in a writer’s bottom drawer. The winner will receive a publishing contract with an advance. The contest will be judged by the editorial team at Black Spring Press.

Submit anything, in any style or genre, between 40 and 1,000 pages. Poetry, fiction, graphic novels, confessions, memoirs, plays, histories, rants, essays are all welcome.

Entry is free.

The closing date is 16 October 2021.
