From the start, we were keen that Slightly Foxed should feature not only contributors familiar from other book pages but also the voices of people who could write but who didn’t think of themselves as writers – people outside the literary world, who had other equally interesting kinds of experience, and for whom the written word was just as important. We’ve come to the conclusion that this describes many of our readers, judging from your sparky entries to the writers’ competitions we’ve run in the past. So, now the dark evenings have closed in again, we think it’s a good time to run another one.
• The competition is open to all Slightly Foxed subscribers. The winner will receive a prize of £250 and will have his or her article published in a future issue of Slightly Foxed
• We’re looking for a piece of between 1,000 and 1,500 words on a favourite book or on a personal experience that is ‘book-related’
• Articles should be submitted as a Word document by email or post, and should include your name and contact details
