Streetcake Experimental Writing Prize

Event Details

This prize is aimed at writers (18-30 years old), who are responding creatively and experimenting with the literature mold. with this prize, we seek to identify, recognise and develop young writers’ careers in the genres of short fiction and poetry.

Some things we love: new forms, unconventional ideas, funny and dark content, imaginative
presentations, concrete and asemic writing, strong imagery, and much more! please read some of what streetcake has published or order last year’s anthology (see below) to give you an idea of what we mean by ‘experimental’ as this will give you a better chance of being one of our winners!

We are supported by the Arts Council England, Writers’ Centre Kingston, Fly on the Wall Press and
Selcouth Station Press. we have been publishing quality experimental writing on our website for over
eleven years and we’re looking forward to supporting more writers in their writing careers.

There are two age categories (18-23 and 24-30) in each category of short fiction and poetry, which
means there are four overall first place winners. we also award second-fourth places in each category.
