2017 IS&T/Café Writers Pamphlet Commission Competition

And we’re off again!

Following on from the success of 2014 co-winner Jay Bernard’s resulting pamphlet The Red and Yellow Nothing being shortlisted for the 2016 Ted Hughes Award, we have taken the plunge again and the IS&T/Café Writers Pamphlet Commission Competition is on for 2017. Basically the same process as before, although we are leaving snail mail behind and entries will be via email only.

Anyone from 2014 who is interested in entering the 2017 competition is eligible for a 10% discount on the handling charge – a kind of a thank-you for your patience. You can link to that page here http://www.inksweatandtears.co.uk/pages/?p=14229 and read the Submission Guidelines here http://www.inksweatandtears.co.uk/pages/?page_id=14164.
