Where Have Entries Arrived From for the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize?

Old British postage stampI must be honest, it’s been something of a delightful surprise.

Not least because we’ve been startled to see how far around the world news of our little competition has spread, but also, some of the postage stamps have been quite funky.

What a clever little #MOLP!

Both postal and online entries have poured in from the four corners of the globe and if things continue going the same way, our dear postie might have to resort to wearing a corset!

We’ve received short stories and poems from the UK as you would expect, but also from Australia, throughout Europe, Asia, several of the American states, Canada, New Zealand and more.

If you think you’ve got what it takes and have a piece of writing you feel is worthy of a punt, we’d love to receive it, however you wish to send it.

Please hop onto our Competition page for full details, but if you’re a quick reader and want the short version, here it comes.

We are looking for unpublished short stories of up to 4,000 words and poems of up to 50 lines, from writers aged 16+ from anywhere in the world.

Oh, and if eco ticks your box, you’ll be delighted to hear that we are planting a tree for every single entry received. After the competition closes, we’ll send everyone the GPS co-ordinates for their tree; how green and cool is that?

Good luck!

The Team
