Vote for us to win the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund

We have some really exciting plans for 2016, but we need a bit of help in order to put those plans into motion!
We want to run creative writing workshops for 16-18 year olds who, due to the reshuffle of A-Level programmes, have missed out on the opportunity to study Creative Writing at A-Level.
To help fund this venture, we’re applying for the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund, but we NEED YOUR VOTES! We would be eternally grateful if you could visit the funding website and vote for us!

The latest Student Wordsmith Competition


We’re sure that you’ve heard by now that The Student Wordsmith Awards will be taking place on 16th April 2016. The event celebrates the hard work and talent of our contributors, readers and supporters, and so we thought it only fitting to allow you all to have some input on the event. With that in mind, we are launching a new design competition: we want you to design the centrepieces that will feature on the tables at the Awards ceremony.
