What next?

Our short story competition went very well with hundreds of entries, about 50 of which were excellent.

The resulting anthology of short stories ‘Resurrection Trust’’ is now available with a foreword by Caroline Lucas and review by Jonathon Porritt.

“Most people find it very difficult indeed to imagine what ‘living sustainably’ might really mean – and neither dry facts nor hypothetical scenarios seem to help very much! The Editors of Resurrection Trust have set out to address that challenge through the power of the short story, with as diverse, surprising and hugely enjoyable a collection of entries as one might expect from an open competition of this kind.” Jonathon Porritt.

Royalties are going towards prizes for the 2019 series of free competitions. These are across several formats (film, screenplays, radio plays, tv series, full-length novels, interactive fiction etc.), with routes to publication/production in place,  larger prizes and media involvement. We hope this will create a cultural body of work showcasing sustainable solutions.

We’d love to get sponsorship from organisations that share these values to sponsor prizes for more competitions in 2020.

We’d love to hear from the following:

  • Organisations that share values of sustainability, creativity and positivity to sponsor a prize.
  • Well-known authors, script writers or TV personalities with an interest in the environment to present prizes.
  • Producers, commissioning editors, agents etc.  who can work with us in the next round of competitions to translate winning entries into actual programmes, films, plays and novels.
