For wild writers and storytellers
"Wild words are your words that want to be seen and heard. The ones you keep caged in the depths of your soul. The words that you sometimes hear cry... They are as often words of joy and peace as they are words of your sorrow or anger. The answering call to the yearning of our heart and soul. The wild words are the one story that needs to be told..."

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.
