The Yeovil Literary Prize international writing competition opens on 1st January 2023, and some changes are taking place. Our closing date remains 31st May 2023. Winners will be informed by September 15th 2023.
We also have new entry fees and increased prizes, in short, our competition has grown and matured; it is now recognised by writers and publishers as prestigious in the international literary world.
By entering the Yeovil Literary Prize competition 2023, you agree to abide by the following rules:
- Entries must be the work of the entrant (who must be over 16), in English, (not translated into English) and must NOT have been previously self-published, broadcast, or accepted for publication.
- Entries may have appeared online, but NOT in any commercial online form (e.g. in a journal or magazine, or as part of a publication requiring payment to access.)
- Entries that have won or are currently shortlisted in other writing competitions DO qualify for entry.
- Copyright remains with the entrant. The entrant’s name must only appear on the entry form and not on the entry itself. If an entry does include the author’s name, it will be disqualified.
