Young Writer Competitions

Become the next Young Writer (a short story writing competition for creative writers) or Young Anthropologist (for writing about identity and culture). You can register to enter now!

Both competitions have a £1,000 first prize and two runner-up prizes of £50. All shortlisted entries will also receive a small prize.

If you register, you'll be invited to online workshops throughout the year delivered by our English and Creative Writing and/or Anthropology departments to help you hone your writing skills and learn from our academic staff. You’ll also receive information about upcoming Goldsmiths events, resources, recommendations and opportunities that will help your entry be the best it can be before submission.

You must register for the competition and submit your final entry by the 11.59pm (BST) on Friday 19 April 2024.
