A creative writing contest
Now the contest is over and the winner have been determined. Thanks to all our great participants! Holywell Music Room, Oxford, 5:30-7:30 pm. The victors and jurors will be reading from their work. We are pleased that Ian McMillan is reading for us and leading a workshops for the contest winner.
The creative writing contest is open to all. It recalls the work of the famous author Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749-1832), whose poetry collections of the West-East Divan (1819) not only presented a dialog between the Christian-European and Muslim world, but also attempted to overcome inflexible separations between them.
The memorial still attracts and reacts to the work of the artist and commentator with their own creative works. Both of these seats are separated, fixed textures that imply two different people, culture or perspective - yet they are both carved out of the same block of masonry. Contest starts on Monday, September 25, 2017.
Further information, such as the terms and condition s and further detail on the topics and what the jury is looking for, can be found here. Hopefully, we will be able to continue to provide further funding to enable more unpaid and new students to participate.
Contest organizer, Dr. James Hodkinson.
Creativity in writing competitions
No one ever leaves Grindstone's creative writing competitions empty-handed, be it in the form of shorts, fictions, novels or lyric. The writing competitions are evaluated by professionals and publishers, and we provide individual, realisable feedbacks to each participant. We' ve created a tailored, sophisticated assessment procedure that has been shown to help us recognize great fonts.
Up to now our winning entries and shortlists have won further competitions for creative writing and placed themselves in other competitions, as well as found representatives. Being a Grindstone champion requires a great deal, but if you have that extra something, you too can enjoy the advantages and reputation that a price and a release from us has.
Placement in manuscripts and writing competitions is a good way to draw attention to yourself, and that is our primary goal to help you. To find out what it means to be a Grindstone Winner, take a look at our previous winner below, browse our blogs or visit our shop to get a copy of our Anthologie or Journal, both of which are full of useful tips for prospective authors.

Work by short-listed candidates can be made public in various ways. When an entry is being posted or if you are a posted writer, this will not exclude you from the contest, although it does not ensure that it will be successful if we believe that another entry was more powerful in a particular case.
