Creative Writing Competition


The Ottery Writers’ Group is currently running a Creative Writing Competition, eligible to all ages of writers in the local area. It aims to create a desire amongst young writers and adults alike, to develop their writing skills; and also act as a distraction in our currently difficult times.


Poems or short stories based on the theme of ‘Memory’ can be submitted. There will be prizes for each category; the closing date is 15th September 2020. The rules and information can be found on or by e-mailing

Darlas, on behalf of Trevor, writes:

Numbers are limited but all you have to do is request a place by emailing me at and I will send instructions to join.  Many thanks!
