Cinnamon Literature Award

Open to all writers, both debut and established voices, and adjudicated by Jan Fortune, Adam Craig and Tracey Iceton. It’s a great way to get your short storey collection, poetry collection or novel seen.

To enter, submit either:

  1. 10 poems, up to 50 lines each; or
  2. 2 short stories, up to 5,000 words each; or
  3. up to the first 10,000 words of your novel (to the nearest sensible cut off point).

Individual poems or stories may have been published online or in magazines, provided the writer retains copyright.

International entrants welcome.

The winning entrant will have their book published by Cinnamon Press.

The entry fee is £16 and the closing date is 30 November, 2019.

We'll look forward to reading your submissions and good luck!
