Event Details

Supported by the Arts Council England and Writers’ Centre Kingston, this is the first year of an exciting new prize administered by streetcake magazine. We have been publishing quality experimental writing on our website for over ten years and we’re looking forward to expanding our remit and supporting young writers at the beginning of their writing career. With this prize, we seek to identify, recognise and develop young writers in the genres of short fiction and poetry.

This prize will be one of the first of its kind, aimed at young people (18-26 years old), who are responding creatively and extending the possibilities of the literature mold. Writers in this age band will shape the future of experimental writing and bring new ideas to this genre.

Please read some of what streetcake has previously published to give you an idea of what we mean by ‘experimental’ as this will give you a better chance of being successful!

The submission period will be open from March 4th 2019 and close on 14th June 2019.
