Detailed Description

Entrants are invited to submit a memoir of up to 2500 words.  This may be a self-contained piece, or it may be the first chapter of a full-length memoir.

Entrants are reminded that memoir is not the same as fact-based autobiography.  Memoir emphasises story.  It is subjective, distinctive and usually focuses on a specific theme or series of memories or even a single event in order to engage the reader and illuminate an aspect of ourselves.

1st prize:                A place at one of the Writers’ & Artists’ ‘How to Hook an Agent’ lunches (value £175).  Full details at www.writersandartists.co.uk/events

2nd prize:               A copy of either the 2017 Writers' & Artists' Yearbook or the 2017 Children's Writers' & Artists' Yearbook plus two other writing advice books selected from:  www.writersandartists.co.uk/store/writersandartistscompanions

3rd prize:                A copy of the 2017 Writers' & Artists' Yearbook or the 2017 Children's Writers' & Artists' Yearbook

Adjudicator:           Paul Dodgson

Sponsor:                Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook
