This year’s Cheshire Prize for Literature will focus on the theme of sustainability.
There are four genre categories: short stories, scriptwriting, children’s literature and poetry.
The competition is open to writers of all ages who have lived, worked or studied in Cheshire (including Wirral and Halton).
There are cash prizes available, and winners may be selected to appear in the competition anthology published by the University of Chester Press.
Entries will be judged by an anonymous panel chaired by Dr. Simon Poole.
