Croydon Writers hold several competitions during our annual cycle

They included poetry (we have a cup for that), short stories, extracts and speed writing. Some take place at the moment. Others are brought along to meetings. We plan shortly a more open competitions with a larger cash prize. Details later in the year on a dedicated page. Following the Committee Meeting on the 18th it was decided to  prepare a proposal for an initial competition for a short story offered to Croydon Schools as a pilot.
