Slightly Foxed Subscribers’ Writing Competition 2019

Share this

The winner of the Slightly Foxed Subscribers’ Writing Competition has been contacted directly, and an announcement has been made in the editorial of Slightly Foxed Issue 62, Summer 2019.

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.

Congratulations to the winner of our writers’ competition T. M. Delaney who lives in Orkney. He received a prize of £250, and we published his article in Slightly Foxed Issue 65, Spring 2020.

With best wishes

    Your O/L index link above takes you to previous editions: I assume you do not want us to cover a book which has been reviewed in the recent past (-how recent?).

      Dear John

      Many thanks for getting in touch and enquiring about our Subscribers’ Writing Competition.

      The link you refer to takes you to our full index of all subjects and contributors featured in our full archive of Slightly Foxed (Issues 1-60), and we encourage those thinking of submitting pieces to us to check to see if the subject they have in mind may have already been covered in the quarterly as we try not to repeat ourselves in terms of books that are written about.

      Of course there may be authors that appear in the quarterly on repeat occasions over the years, but there will be a different title covered in the piece, or a different approach to reading the author.

      I do hope this helps, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions.

      With best wishes
