Bridget set exercises that stretched my writing skills and really took me out of my comfort zone, which was just what I needed.

Enter the Wild Words Writing Competition

We may be yearning to fill our potential as writers and to write words that leap off the page, but at Wild Words we know that it’s not always easy to unchain yourself from everyday responsibilities, break out of the box and just write.

We hope that this competition will act as a friendly elbow in the ribs, a quiet kick in the shins. It’s a carrot to get you scribbling.

It runs twice a year and celebrates the Spring and Winter solstices. Each solstice there's a new theme to inspire your entry. The closing dates are the 21st June, and the 21st December.
