Creative Future Literary Awards are open for entries of poetry and flash fiction from writers (UK only) who find it hard to access the literary world, due to ill health (including mental health issues), disability or social circumstance. Poems are invited of up to 200 words (flash fiction up to 300) on the theme of ‘important nothings’. Winning pieces will be published in an anthology. Prizes include cash plus writer development opportunities such as mentoring, courses and professional consultations. Writers may submit a maximum of one piece per category (one poem and/or one piece of flash fiction). Read the eligibility criteria carefully before submitting.
