The 15th Elmbridge Literary Competition 2019/20
Whether the first day at school, the start of a new job, the tenuous steps into a new life or a strange landscape of the imagination, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, this year’s Elmbridge Literary Competition is looking for short stories and poems that explore new worlds.
Now in its 15th year and following the success of 2018’s ‘A Shiver Down the Spine’, The Elmbridge Literary Competition is opening its entry criteria to national and international submissions. Run in partnership between The R C Sherriff Trust and Elmbridge Borough Council, it is open to all ages.
