Who can take part?
The Emerge Creative Writing Prize is open to any writer residing in the UK, at an early stage of their career. If you’re a poet, short story writer, screenwriter, playwright or other creative writer—this is the open call for you.
If you work in another creative discipline, check out the other Emerge prize categories to find the one that’s most applicable to you.
Why should I submit?
Emerge aims to promote artistic diversity by celebrating the most talented budding creatives of all backgrounds, in every location across the UK. That includes you! Let’s join forces and remind the world that the UK’s creativity is best in class, worth supporting and open for business.
The 15 shortlisted creative writers will have their work seen by leading industry figures, who will then select the top 3 finalists including the overall winner.
It’s free to submit and if selected as a finalist, you’ll be invited to join us for the Emerge Awards ceremony in May 2018 (details to follow).
