Greater Manchester Young Life Writers 2019

Exciting opportunity for aspiring young authors!

The Haven Greenfield is collaborating with Creative Locations Publishing based in Saddleworth and Sacred Stories Publishing based in USA to create a compilation book featuring the short stories and poetry of aspiring young life writers aged 16 to 25 from the Greater Manchester area.

Are you a young life writer with a story to tell?

Maybe you have something that you feel needs to be shared, discussed or could create positive change for your community?

Could it inspire and unite people? Do you want to share your story of the challenges you have faced?

If your story is a reflection of a personal experience, we would love to hear from you. It can be in the form of a short story or poem.

Our vision for this project is to offer 16 to 25 year olds the opportunity to share their voices through writing. Sharing our stories is a powerful way to inspire and create positive change for ourselves and others. We hope to engage our audience of readers with messages and life experiences written from the hearts of our young people.

If your story is written in the form of song lyrics, please check out our Life Song opportunity (details coming soon).

We open for entries on 5th February 2019 and the final closing date is midnight of 19th March 2019

It is free to enter and all manuscripts will be read by a panel made up of representatives of The Haven Greenfield and Creative Locations Publishing and shortlisted before selections will be made and the authors offered the chance to feature in the compilation book to be published and marketed world-wide by Sacred Stories Publishing in paperback and e-book formats.

This project is being supported by the current High Sheriff of Greater Manchester, Dr Robina Shah and more information about her work can be found on the Team High Sheriff website.
