Sponsored by the University Centre Grimsby, our annual writing competition, now in its fifth year, attracts entries from 27 different countries.

This year's competition theme, SURVIVAL, is intended to inspire, not restrict, suggesting anything from an environmental crisis, a zombie apocalypse, a broken relationship, or just a bad day at the office. We're excited to read your interpretations.
