Sense Creative Writing Competition

September 22, 2009

I’ve been asked to post the below by John Gaddon at Sense.

Don’t miss this opportunity to EXPRESS YOURSELF!

The deadline for the Sense Creative Writing Competition has been extended to December 09.

Tell us your story
Do you feel you have something to say? Would you like to bring your thoughts and ideas to a wider audience? Are you looking for an outlet for your creative talents?

Why not write something for EXPRESS YOURSELF – Sense’s creative writing competition?.

We welcome any type of writing: life stories, poetry, humour, thriller, romance, political – whatever floats your boat!

The categories
There are five EXPRESS YOURSELF! awards for the best piece of writing by:

  • a deafblind child or young person
  • a deafblind adult
  • a carer or family member (including siblings and grandparents)
  • any individual on the subject of deafblindness.

There is also an award for the best creative piece presented in British Sign Language – with submissions made on video or DVD.

Entries are also accepted in Welsh as well as English.

Prizes and recognition
Each prize winner will receive their award at a ceremony in November. They will also receive:

  • A prize of £100
  • Their winning piece (or part of it) will be published in the Winter 2009 issue of Talking Sense.
  • Their work will be added to the `Life Stories’ section of Sense’s new library. This is a growing collection of creative work produced by deafblind people and on the subject of deafblindness.

Extended deadline – Friday 18 December
