Delighted to hear the winners of City Writes latest competition announced this week. Joining City tutor Cherry Potts and her Solstice Shorts team on Thursday 13th December will be Meera Betab, Angelita Bradney, Kate Henderson and Debz Hobbs-Wyatt. City Writes founder and judge, Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone, said the competition was ‘really strong’ this term. Having worked with both Meera and Kate, I can vouch for the strength of these winning writers!

City Writes was set up by Rebekah as a way to showcase the fantastic work being produced by both City writing short course alumni and tutors and provide an opportunity to read their work to an invited audience. Each term the winners get to share the stage with one of the published tutors for an evening of readings. This one promises to be suitably festive with musicians accompanying some of the writers’ work. Tickets are £10, which includes wine. Book here now for an alternative Christmas event.

City Writes Fiction Competition

This autumn City Writes opens its doors once again with a writing competition open to all past and present City Writing Short Course Students. Submit by 17 November to win a chance to read alongside City short course alumnus Greg Keen, whose debut crime novel, Soho Dead, came out in July. Set up and run by The Book Edit's very own Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone, the next City Writes event will be held on 13 December and is well worth attending, even if you don't win the competition! Tickets available here.
