Write here, write now!

Have you written something fantastic? Or something which you think has potential but would benefit from a fresh perspective? Have you completed a sparkling story, but lack the confidence to show it to someone else? Send it to us.

Product’s Literary Editor Richard Allen offers a mentoring service to new writers of fiction and non-fiction. Richard will help selected writers draft, revise and perfect an original piece of writing to be published in Product next year.

Interested writers are invited to send one example of work and a brief outline of their idea to by December 31, 2021.

Applications are open to writers in English, regardless of  location. Previous winners include Amy Jardine (The Sugar Hotel) and Shirley Gillan (Outside In).

The two selected writers will be announced on January 14, 2022 and will be able to commence developing work immediately. Completed works will be published in Product in spring 2022.

When applying, please note the following guidelines:

– Fiction and non-fiction work should be no longer than 3,000 words. Applications exceeding this limit will not be considered
– Outline your idea in a maximum of 300 words
– Please send Word documents only
– Include your name, address, postcode and word count on the title sheet.
– Work must be original and not previously unpublished anywhere, either print or online.

Deadline: midnight, Friday December 31, 2021.

Product is a co-operative with charitable status, run by volunteers. We will reply to all applications, and ensure that all applications are read, but please bear in mind that we may not be able to respond to applications immediately. We do not enter into correspondence about our decisions. There is no cash prize, certificate or awards ceremony.
