There are so many competitions for new writers now. The competitions are for every genre of novels, poems, and art. I thought I’ll highlight just two that came to my notice. One from Ireland posted by the Scottish Writers Centre on FB and another annual one from the Scottish Book Trust.

Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Competition
This international poetry competition gives poetry writers a chance to win €1000 for a single poem. Winning poems will be published in our online poetry journal ‘Southword’.

Scottish Book Trust are looking for 8 talented and committed writers to participate in their New Writers Awards. Successful applications will receive £2000 to allow them to spend time writing. The deadline for application is Thursday 24th November (midday).
