Event Details

Shakespeare is renowned for his inventive use of language, creation of new words and blatant use of time honoured tales of love, hope, murder and revenge. He has created some of the world’s most beloved tales, characters and gifted the English language with words we still use everyday. His works have been adapted, reinterpreted and extended as writers have wondered what if, what now and what next. Now it’s your turn.

At its heart, this competition is about celebrating and breathing new life into the works of Shakespeare by inviting writers to send us their own creations. In 2019, the theme is “Shakesfeare“. So sharpen your quills and send us your best original short story of 2000 words.

Winners will be announced at the opening night of the Festival on Friday 26 April, 2019.  The opening of the Stratford on Avon Shakespeare Festival will be celebrated at The Courthouse Theatre, Stratford (66 Princes Highway) at 6.30pm.
