How To Submit To Creative Future Writers Award 2022

The competition closes Sunday 22 May 2022 at 11:59 pm. Entries submitted after the deadline will not be eligible.

This year’s theme is ‘How It Started.’ The theme is a creative prompt, not a requirement. We are seeking the highest quality writing foremost.

You can submit ONE piece of writing in each category (poetry or fiction) or ONE piece of writing in one category, up to and not exceeding the word limits per category:

Poetry: maximum 50 lines
Fiction: maximum 2,000 words

The competition is ONLY open to:
People who are underrepresented--those who find it difficult to access the literary world either because of mental health issues, disability, health, or social circumstance. These categories are defined here.

UK residents—please do not enter if you are not living in the UK or a UK citizen living abroad.
People over 18 years old.

The competition is ONLY open to writers who have not previously published a book/stand-alone publication via an established press/publisher (excluding self-published works or as part of an anthology) in creative prose or poetry.

Please DO NOT put your name on your work. Judging is anonymous.

We prefer typed entries, but accept handwritten entries—do keep copies as entries will not be returned.

Submissions cannot be altered after entry. You can withdraw your entry and make a new one if needed.

We cannot offer feedback on your work or enter into correspondence about your entry. We are a very small team of part-time staff.

Winners will be notified by 30 September 2022 and no earlier. Judges’ decisions are final.

Winning pieces will be published in our anthology and therefore must not have been published previously in magazines, anthologies, or online where there is an external selection process (e.g. except on your own blog, website, or social media).

If you have entered your work into another competition and win, or the piece is accepted for publication elsewhere, please notify us immediately to withdraw your submission.

Copyright remains with the author, though by submitting you agree to allow us to publish winning work in the anthology and e-book, on our and our partners’ websites.

Employees of Creative Future or our project partners are ineligible to enter the competition.
Your personal data will be covered by current UK data protection legislation.

We reserve the right to amend the Rules as deemed necessary or where circumstances are beyond our control. Any changes will be posted on the Creative Future website.

If you have any questions, please get in touch on 01273 234780 or info@creativefuture.org.uk.

eligibility requirements 

The Creative Future Writers' Award is open to writers who are underrepresented. This includes people who feel their opportunities are limited as a result of:

  • mental health issues
  • Black, Asian, traveller, mixed heritage or other ethnic minority backgrounds
  • physical disability
  • long-term limiting illness
  • sensory impairment
  • learning disability/ADHD/dyslexia/dyspraxia
  • neurodivergent/ASD
  • working class background
  • substance misuse issue
  • survivors
Please choose any and all categories which apply to you when entering. We ask that you self-identify under the above categories and do not ask that you prove your eligibility.

We champion people who are underrepresented in a range of ways, on the assumption that people will use their judgement about the barriers and issues they have faced. We have never been in a position of turning someone away as ‘not underrepresented enough.’

Entrants must be 18 years of age or over.

Please also note that the competition is only open to UK citizens and residents:

  • I am a UK citizen living abroad – ELIGIBLE
  • I am a non-UK citizen living in the UK – ELIGIBLE
  • I am not a UK citizen nor living in the UK – INELIGIBLE
