Event Details

The Literary Lancashire Award is about celebrating young writers and celebrating the importance of creative writing. Lancashire is a wonderfully beautiful and diverse place, tucked away in the Northern reaches of the country. We want to see something of this inspiration and potential in the writing we receive.

At our heart, we are just a group of students wanting to give something back to the community, using the skills we’ve gained in our education to introduce young people to a creative sector we’ve learnt to love.”

Lara Orriss and Ruth Walbank
Co-founders of the LLA (2018-19)

The Literary Lancashire Award is a creative writing competition and community outreach programme for 16-30-year olds who live in Lancashire. It has been founded to fill an artistic gap in the community and we value creative writing as a viable degree and career option. Our aim is to create an active interest in the creative industry for young people.​
