Lightship Short Memoir Contest
Do you want to tell your own story, or an episode of it; write from your own life experiences and get published? A short memoir is not fact-based autobiography. It is pure storytelling and as such, allows writers licence to make sense of a part of life, to fashion it into a story that readers can learn from and be entertained by. The inaugural Lightship Short Memoir Competition will be judged by Rachel Cusk. The winning entry will be awarded £1,000 and be published in Lightship Anthology 3.
The Prizes
1st Prize: £1,000 / US$1600*
The winner and nine runners-up will be published in the Lightship anthology by Lightship Publishing Ltd and Alma Books and will be invited to read from their work at an awards ceremony in Kingston-upon-Hull in 2013. (Please note we cannot fund travel costs to and from the awards.)
The Judge
Rachel Cusk will judge the Lightship International Short Memoir Competition 2012-2013.
