The Aesthetica Creative Writing Award is inviting entries in short fiction and poetry from writers at all stages in their career. In addition to publication, £500 prize money, books from Vintage and Bloodaxe Books, we are delighted to announce that Aesthetica has partnered with Granta, the quarterly magazine of new writing, to offer each winner a subscription to the publication.
Recently, Londoners and visitors might have found themselves sitting on concrete benches, which resemble half open books. Benches not only look like a book, they are fully dressed up by different depictions that resemble and celebrate the literary heritage of London. For the Summer 2014 the National Literary Trust and Wild in Art are the promoters of the project Books about Town whose purpose isn’t just limited to the celebration of the rich literary background that London offers, as it aims to engage the public through the joy of reading, via art.
Offering both aspiring and established writers the opportunity to publish their work, the Aesthetica Creative Writing Award is a rare chance to further your engagement with an international audience and develop your writing acclaim in the industry worldwide.
The Aesthetica Creative Writing Annual is a celebration of outstanding poetry and short fiction, which promises to inspire you long after reading. This compelling collection unites established and emerging literary talent from across the world, and features the winners and finalists from the Aesthetica Creative Writing Award 2013.
