Green Stories writing competitions are a series of free writing competitions across various formats to solicit stories that showcase what a sustainable society might look like. Open to all. Entries must be in English and unpublished. The competitions are organised by the University of Southampton. Our mission is to create a cultural body of work that entertains and informs about green solutions, inspires green behaviour and raises awareness of the necessary transformations towards a sustainable economy.
What competitions are currently open?
We anticipate a free short story competition with prizes in 2024. We are just waiting for confirmation of sponsorship. Details expected in January. If you would like to sponsor a competition, please get in touch.
