Beverley author Valerie Wood has announced that entries are now open for her 2017 writing competition, which this year has the theme of Freedom in Hull.

And as it is City of Culture year, the prize is bigger than ever. The winner will receive £200 and their entry will be published on the website and shared via various social media outlets. The runner up will receive £50 and there will also be two commendations of £25.

Cash prizes are being donated by Beverley Building Society and The James Reckitt Library Trust.  The competition is open to anyone over 16 and entries should be in the form of a short story. Entrants are free to write about whatever they wish but each story must feature the theme: Freedom in Hull.

Entries from already commercially published writers will not be accepted but previous entrants/winners may enter the competition again using alternative entries.

The winner of the competition and runners up will be announced at a special ceremony at Hull Central Library on 14th October. More information, including all the entry criteria, can be found by logging on to the following link:
