Beechmore Book is a website for premium journals and notebooks. Currently, the website is accepting entries for the Beechmore Life Writing Competition 2020. They believe, “writing from your own life takes courage. Many people journal in private, but refining a piece of life writing so that it conveys a snippet of your reality is a real art.” They are willing to support the best works with cash prizes, publication on Beechmore Books website and a notebook.
To enter the contest, send a short piece of your best life writing. This is defined as any creative prose with the essence of truth and a focus on the author’s personal experience. You can submit up to 1000 words for this contest. The first prize winner will receive a cash prize of £200, publication on Beechmore Books website, and a notebook of his or her choice. The second prize winner will receive a cash prize of £100, publication on Beechmore Books website, and a notebook of his or her choice.
