A paradoxical writing competition

Barbed sky cr Judy DarleyParagram have launched their 2016 writing competition – the Paragram ‘Paradox’ Prize.

They say: “The theme is Paradox, inherently ludicrous, wry or hard to believe, we felt this was the perfect chance to search for poems and petite-prose designed to make the reader laugh. Of course paradox can equally be sad, joyous or droll – the choice is yours.”

With categories in humour, poetry and petite-prose, there’s plenty to fire up your imagination, not to mention the motivation of cash prizes and publication opportunities.

There will be a cash prize of £50 in each of the three genres with the winning and short-listed work from each category to be included in the Paragram anthology ‘Paradox’ which will be published in time for Christmas 2016.

The fee for first entry is £6, with subsequent entries costing £4.

The closing date for entries is 31st July 2016.
