Outside the Window

If you are a 14-19 year old living in Lancashire, then we want to hear from you! 

For this edition of Future Writers, we would like you to produce a piece of writing related to the theme ‘Outside the Window’. It doesn’t have to be about something real, it can come from your imagination or be inspired by something you have seen or heard. Be creative! 

It can either be a written piece or it can be spoken word (presented as an audio or video clip), whichever you would prefer. 

The deadline for entries is Friday 14th May 2021. 

All the submissions will be judged by our panel of experts, which includes academics from our partner universities. The best piece will win an Amazon Kindle and all winning entries will be collated into an anthology, which winners will receive a copy of. 

To find out more about the project and how you could get involved, as well as some top writing tips, and an insight into what it is like to study English at University, then please watch the video below. 

Writing is a great way to express yourself, make your voice heard and this could even be a way of starting your creative writing career! So challenge yourself and become one of our Future Writers. 

To submit your entry then please complete the form below and attach your piece of work. We will only consider entries that are submitted with full and accurate information*. If you have any queries then please go to our Contact Us page and get in touch.
