Creative writing prize: The Mind membership short story competition

2d42a491-707e-4e1b-b97e-438f902065d0

 

Mind members are invited to enter short stories on the theme of 'journeys'

The mental health charity has launched a free-to-enter short story competition for its members. Enter original, unpublished short stories between 2,000 and 4,000 words on the 'journey' theme – journeys may be mental, physical, spiritual or emotional, and stories may be fictional or autobiographical.

Stories must be suitable to be published online by Mind for audiences of all ages, and must not contain offensive material or any negative representations of mental health. If there is any potentially upsetting material, it should be signposted at the beginning of the story.

The author of the winning story will receive books worth £100 from Penguin and highly commended authors will get a copy of John Green's Turtles All the Way Down. Winning and highly commended writers will receive a year's free subscription to Audible, a Mind bag full of Mind merchandise, Love2Shop vouchers and their stories will be published on the Mind website.

To enter, writers must be Mind members.

The closing date is 21 May.

For full details see the website.
