The Gloucestershire Writers’ Network runs an annual competition supported by The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, for anyone living, working or studying in Gloucestershire (including South Gloucestershire) to submit poems and prose pieces based on a different theme chosen each year. The theme for 2018 is ‘East Meets West’ which can be widely interpreted.  All poems and prose pieces will be read by our judges. Prize-winners will have the opportunity to read at the GWN event at The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival in October. The deadline this year is midnight, 31st July 2018.
