A wonderful writing opportunity for those of you in the UK:
The Sustainability First Writing Prize 2021 is open to British writers and international writers living, working or studying in the UK, over the age of 18 years. Writing could include, but is not limited to, an article, a personal account, an essay, a short story, or a poem. For the writing prize, we would like to see pieces of writing that respond to the question:
How do we achieve meaningful social changes in the UK to tackle the climate crisis and develop a fairer society?
We want to hear writers’ imaginative visions, creative ideas and practical steps for societal change. This could draw from lived experience. Written entries will need to look at both climate change and fairness in society, and we particularly invite suggestions for how to challenge existing structures and achieve wider behavioural, social, cultural and/or systems change in a constructive and practical way.
First prize: £1,000
Deadline: 10 July, 2021
