A fellow writer and friend of mine from Ireland spotted this monthly contest for young writers:

Give it a go!


Writer’s Forum (UK glossy writing mag, very good read, reputable, well-known) runs a monthly contest.

Open worldwide but entries in English

No fee

Winner gets 30 sterling, 3 runners up get a Collins English dictionary which includes encyclopedic entries. And they’re all published in the magazine.

Under 16 at time of submission

Entry no longer than 800 words

Email your story or poem or news feature as a Word attachment (.doc or .docx) or in body of the email

Include your details – for a template to use send a blank email to

Include a small pic of yourself, preferably a recent school photo if possible as a jpeg attachment

A parent or guardian must declare that your entry has not previously been published

Email entry to (email entries only please)

Deadline is 15thof each month and late entries roll into the next month

By entering you agree the story can appear in the mag and future anthologies of the mag.

Mary Jo’s NOTE:  as with any contest or calls for submissions, you should always check out the publication to see what they’ve printed/accepted before.  It’s also a good idea to read the previous winning entries to get a feel for the magazine’s style and tone:
