Writing prize: The Love Books Competition


15 March 2021
Write about why you love your favourite book, poem or play in the competition from Marlborough LitFest

The Love Books Competition, which is being run by Marlborough Litfest in association with Bath Spa University, invites entries up to 750 words, or videos no longer than five minutes. Entries may be reviews, but do not need to be - they can  be creative responses to texts - as long as the writing shows why you love the book, poem, collection, play or graphic novel that you have chosen.

There are three age categories: 13-6, 17-19, and 20+. In each category, the winner will get £300 and the runner up, £100.

All entries must be original and unpublished. Entry is free. One entry is permitted per person.
