The Inspiring History Writing contest invites pieces about their authors' favourite historical places
The competition is for creative, inspiring non-fiction about why your chosen place makes you feel most connected to the past and inspired to study its history. Pieces may be up to 400 words and do not have to be about famous heritage sites.
The winner of the Inspiring History Writing competition will be published in BBC History Magazine and will receive a prize package including two tickets to BBC History Magazine's History Weekend in Malmesbury (15 to 17 October) including three nights' accommodation; a framed print of their entry; afternoon tea in London with Alison Weir and Tracey Borman to discuss writing, and £500-worth of history books published by Hachette UK. Five runners up will each receive £50-worth of history books and have their work published online.
The closing date is 1 September.
