Escalator Literature Fiction Competition: managed through the Writers’ Centre, Norwich, this writing competition is for writers living in East of England who would benefit from mentoring. (You need to be living in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk). Submit a 3000 word sample and covering letter, complete the online questionnaire and payment of £5 by the deadline on 29 November. Remember to check the website for full terms and conditions.
Even if you don’t live in the East of England you ought to think seriously about entering your writing in competitions. If nothing else, it will encourage you to complete a piece of work and take it to a polished state instead of adding it to the growing pile of incomplete typescripts cluttering up the bottom drawer.
