Aspiring writers: Writing competition and writers workshop

30th November 2018

The ‘green stories’ writing competitions ask writers to check out sustainable solutions on the website http://www.greenstories.org.uk/ and integrate them into their story.

Research from Dr Baden at the University of Southampton shows that solution based stories, or stories that smuggle in green ideas/characters in the context of an otherwise mainstream story are more likely to inspire greener behaviours than catastrophic tales of climate change. So as a way to raise awareness, we ask writers to check out potentially transformative solutions on the website http://www.greenstories.org.uk/ and integrate them into their story.

BAM is sponsoring £500 of prizes for a radio play or series that touches upon green issues http://www.greenstories.org.uk/radio-play-dramacomedy-series/ (deadline July 2019). There is also a novel competition sponsored by UNPRME UK (deadline August 2019) and a playwriting competition (deadline June 2019). All are free to enter with prizes (including student categories) and routes to production/publication set up.

There is also a writers workshop on 19/20 January 2019 hosted by two of the judges to generate ideas – see https://store.southampton.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/southampton-business-school/events/writing-for-sustainability-workshop
