BMAF Creative Writing Competition 2017

Logo: BMAF
Let The Competition Begin…

This is an open invitation to participate in and support the 54th running of the annual Basingstoke Music & Arts Festival (BMAF).

My name is Tony Corbin and as a local published author and NAWG member (through Basingstoke Writers' Circle), I was invited this year to become a BMAF Trustee and take on the role of Creative Writing competition Section Secretary. Creative Writing is just one of the twelve festival competition categories as illustrated in the graphic below:

BMAF: competition categories

As with all the BMAF Festival categories, the Creative Writing Competition is open to both Children and Adults. The Creative Writing Section categories include, short story, poetry, letter writing, articles and play writing. Unusually for a Creative Writing competition, the BMAF event provides independent adjudicator feedback for all entrants, irrespective of whether that entry is an overall winner or achieves category commendation in the form of a certificate or medal. The free to attend Creative Writing awards ceremony will take place at 2 o'clock on Sunday 12th March in the Gymnasium building at Queen Mary's College.

For more information on Creative Writing competition (or any of the other related Festival categories), please visit the festival website where you can also download the entry form. I should add that BMAF is a non-profit making charitable status concern. I look forward to receiving your entries.

So finally… Let the Writing Begin!

— Tony Corbin, Basingstoke Writers' Circle.
