Hillingdon Literary Festival

We are delighted to announce the return of our Hillingdon Literary Festival creative writing competition. 

This year, the theme of 'Outer Limits: Hidden Lives' challenges the many misconceptions of the outer boroughs of London, and offers a spotlight on the brilliant talent and the multiple vibrant voices that make up the creative community of the London Borough of Hillingdon. 

The prize is £250 cash and a copy of the hardback anthology of all the winners. 

You can enter for free and the deadline for submissions is Friday 10 August, so get writing! 

The weekend of 5-7 October 2018 sees the return of Hillingdon Literary Festival (HiLF2018) for its fourth year at Brunel University London. If your work is selected for the anthology, you will be invited to read your work on the Sunday afternoon just before the winner is announced.

The festival is a free weekend of literary events that this year reforcuses its attention on new writing (including debut novelists and publishers) and the very many voices that deserve and demand attention from the literary community.
