  • Closed 21st August 2015

The Pam's People competition, which was started a few years ago and has gone from strength to strength, is now closed. This competition is for NAWG members only and free to enter.

Are you one of Pam's People? This has been set up to keep you all out of mischief over the summer break and be industrious with your time until the Warwick Festival of Writing. The first prize is a high street voucher, to the value of £ 20, a spot in the 2015 Write Path anthology and publication on the NAWG web site. If we get a lot of entries there may be other goodies up for grabs…

Write a complete story, interesting article or a piece of descriptive prose about anything, in 250 words. Make me laugh, make me cry or make me amazed by your word power, but most of all – enter! Let me know what talent we have hiding within the groups.

The rules are simple.

  1. Be a member of NAWG.
  2. Write 250 words, exactly, including title.
  3. Only one entry per member.
  4. Double spaced, typed if possible, but I will accept hand writing, as long as it is your best "posh" stuff. No scribbling on the backs of envelopes. Do not put your name on your entry.
  5. Name, address, phone number and e-mail address, if you have one, and the name of your writing group or individual member, if you are one, all on a separate sheet.

Pop it in the post to:

c/o 65 Riverside Mead

Or, e-mail: with "Pam's People Comp" in the subject line. Your details, as above in rule 5, in the body of the message and with your anonymous entry as an attachment.

Closing date: Friday 21st August, 2015.

The winner will be announced at the Warwick Festival of Writing, and will be presented with the prize and a certificate at the gala dinner, the pinnacle of our writing year. The gala dinner awards ceremony is an exceptional event that takes place during the festival on 4th–6th September, 2015. Book yourself in for a place at Warwick now and be at the awards ceremony to share the joy of the 2015 NAWG writing competition trophy winners. You never know – it might be you.
