100 Words Competition

26th Mar 2020

To help us prepare for the start of our centenary celebrations this year, we launched our 100-word competition in March.

Calling all wordsmiths

In partnership with the Society of Civil and Public Service Writers (SCPSW), we’re challenging all our members to write a short piece on their experience of CSSC. The only rules are it must be a non-fiction account in exactly 100 words, excluding the title. And that’s it. The rest is up to you.

Deadline extended to 30 April

Due to the overwhelming popularity of this competition, we’ve decided to extend the closing date to 30 April 2020, for as many entries as possible.

The winning entries will be selected by an expert panel of judges from CSSC and SCPSW and will take home some wonderful literary prizes.

  • First place will win a 6-month book subscription with the Willoughby book club.
  • Second place will win a 3-month book subscription with the Willoughby book club.
  • There will also be book vouchers available for commendable entries.
“Beauty is in the heart of the Beholder – HG Wells”

Please submit your entry using the form on the competition page, by 30 April. Winners will be announced in July 2020.

Good luck!
