Sonnet Writing Competition

To commemorate 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare we’ve come together with The Arden Shakespeare and the Royal Society of Literature to offer a completely free sonnet writing competition. Prizes include a leather-bound edition of Shakespeare’s Complete Works (RRP £99.99) and free membership to the Royal Society of Literature for a year.




Winners announced!

Natasha Pulley – author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street and this year’s judge of our annual short story competition – has chosen her winner and two runners up.
