Evening Standard Storeis Competition

 Full details

We’re searching for fresh new voices who can take the idea of ‘belonging’ in a surprising direction, or tackle it in a way that stops us in our tracks. Perhaps it’s a personal story that holds a universal resonance, or maybe this is a chance to think beyond the real and write a compelling work of fiction. Think about communities, clubs, tribes, groups – parties, football matches, school rooms, chicken shops, barbers and the joy that comes from being part of something.

Whatever your take, this is an opportunity to tell an engaging story and win invaluable mentorship plus the chance to be published across Evening Standard platforms. This competition is not limited to a ‘short story’. Submissions can be a piece of spoken word or performance, perhaps it’s a monologue, a script or a self-contained episode of a narrative podcast. Entries can be submitted as written, audio, or film.

Entrants must be 18+
