Press Release: UCL Publishers’ Prize for Student Writing

By Anne Welsh, on 12 November 2014

UCL Publishers' Prize

PRESS RELEASE 10/11/2014

CALL FOR ENTRIES: We are pleased to announce the 2015 UCL Publishers’ Prize for Student Writing.

Submissions for the 2015 UCL Publishers’ Prize for Student Writing open at 12 noon on 14 November 2014.

For guidelines on how to enter please refer to our updated terms and conditions available on the UCL Publishers’ Prize website.

The Prize was launched in 2014 by ten students from University College London’s MA Publishing course to support aspiring writers and discover the next generation of talent. We hope to follow the success of the inaugural Prize which produced an impressive collection of original short stories, putting our own twist on the legacy with the addition of flash fiction. The 2014 anthology is currently selling at Waterstones Gower Street and we are thankful to all past, present, and future sponsors, advisors, and supporters.

The 2015 Prize is open to all 2014-15 undergraduates and postgraduates, including part-time and PhD students. The shortlist of stories will be chosen by our new committee of six MA Publishing students and the winners will be selected by a panel of well-established professionals from the publishing industry. In the short fiction category there will be cash awards for the third, second and first place winners, including a Faber Academy creative writing day course for the first place winner. There will be a cash award for the first place winner in the flash fiction category.

The Prize celebrates excellence in creative writing and is looking for bold new voices to build upon the tradition of brilliant writing at UCL. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for writing tips and details of our upcoming events.

The deadline for submissions is 11.59 pm, 16 January 2015.

Please note: Those previously shortlisted for the 2014 Publishers’ Prize cannot apply.
