Young Writer Competitions

Our writing competitions for young people aged 16-18 aim to uncover the next generation of writing talent. Become the next Young Writer (a short story writing competition for creative writers), Young Columnist (for journalists with a historical angle), or Young Anthropologist (for writing about identity and culture).

All three competitions have a £1,000 first prize, and two runner-up prizes of £50. All shortlisted entries will also receive a small prize.

The deadline for all competitions is 31 July 2020.
