Final Call for Entries to the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize

The MoonWe’ll be pulling a late one on Sunday night.

In fact, we’ll probably be perched over computer screens armed with stiff coffees at midnight and beyond, as our tech team closes the door on the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize for this year.

It has been an incredibly busy few months to be honest and it’s no surprise really; our literary prize is quite unique.

Magic Oxygen Anthology CoverWe’re giving away £3,000 in prize money and planting a tree for every single entry in Bore, Kenya oh and we’re building a schoolhouse too at the Kundeni school and just to put the icing on the cake, we’ll be publishing the shortlisters and winners in a beautiful anthology which will be available once the winners have been announced during the Lyme Literary Festival.

That’s a lot of good reasons to enter if you haven’t done so already!

If you are planning on getting a postal entry in, it must be postmarked before Sunday 30th November to be allowed in.

As long as it arrives on our doormat with a postmark before the 1st December, you’re OK! Alternatively, if you’re near Lyme Regis, feel free to drop it in by hand.

To be honest, your safest bet is to use our electronic upload facility on our competition page. It’s swift, secure and you’ll get a confirmed response back from us to reassure you that everything is as it should be.

Your entry then moves along to the judging team and that’s very exciting!

Don’t forget, the deadline is the stroke of midnight on Sunday 30th November!

The system will be disabled beyond that point and you will not be able to enter.

WatchOne final piece of advice; don’t leave your entry to the last minute. If you have a cunning plan to upload your well crafted piece at some point, don’t rely on technology to play fair.

Get it done and dusted before the witching hour approaches or the gremlins might just sneak in and scupper all of your literary plans.

Thank you for being part of our first literary prize, thank you from all the children of the Kundeni School, you are about to make their lives so much better and thank you from us, as a result of the tropical Word Forest being planted, we’re all going benefit because the planet will be cooler!

Ahh…time for a calming cup of chamomile tea I think…

The Team

PS: One last thing, if there’s any way you could post our little animation to help us spread the word on the final day, we’d be enormously grateful.
