Thanet Group Launch Writing Competition

Thanet Creative Writers launched a contest for writers this week.

The contest called "Writer's Writing Competition" aims to help local writers build up an authorial presence in preperation for one day seeking publication.

The Writing Competition is open to anyone at all but those with a connection to Thanet would be at a significant advantage.

The contest is divided into twelve themes with each theme running for one week. The first theme "What gets me writing?" closes at Midnight on Monday. Thanet Creative Writers are recommending that participants create a free blog account to host their entries and have offered several suggestions.

No sign up is required and you only have to notify Thanet Creative Writers that you have published your entry (and where).

Originally intended as a friendly competition and a way for writers to work together, the competition has attracted outside interest. Since the competition was first announced on Sunday, a donor has already come forward offering a cash prize for the eventual winner.

In response to the heightened interest, Thanet Creative writers have published an FAQ to help writers get the most out of the contest.
