The Page is Printed Competition

Even if you don’t enter them, writing competitions can offer inspiration and even a writing prompt, if there’s a theme. So, I’m cheating this week and pointing you towards the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre’s The Page is Printed Competition.

Although an empty page can be daunting for writers, this competition asks for a story a page long – that is, one side of A4. This is a competition with a difference, though, because it’s also about the spoken word, so your story needs to come to life, when it’s read aloud. So think emails, letters, a poem or a conversation. To enter the competition head here.

Your writing prompt: Write a story that fits on one side of A4 paper and one that is best read aloud.


Write a page that works as a spoken word story
