Apprentice Writers wanted
Word Factory was founded by journalist and writer Cathy Galvin to bring the very best short story writers together for readings, masterclasses and to create new work. Events are held in London’s Soho and in other venues in the UK and Ireland.
The Word Factory is now seeking two emerging short story writers who would benefit from mentoring from Alex Preston and Stella Duffy. Also on offer is free entry to all Word Factory events and seminars, the chance to be published online, a reading at one of their events plus contact with the Word Factory team.
In exchange, apprentices will be expected to contribute regularly to the website and keep a journal of their experiences.
To enter send a short story of 4,000 words or less with a 500 word max summary of why you want to apply and what you could bring to the Word Factory. more information HERE
Deadline: Sunday 1 September
