The World: poster for Letter to the Planet Mini-MOLP1The inaugural Mini-MOLP is now open and we are delighted to present you with a literary playground where you can let your imagination run wild!

Your letter to the planet can be written by anybody or anything, living, dead or otherwise, there are no rules as far as that’s concerned.

Is it a humble apology, is it a promise-to-do-better letter, is it a note from a creature who has worked out a new strategy to survive?

Only you can decide!

It is not a pre-requisite but you might like to take inspiration from Earth Day or National Gardening Week.

You have up to 350 words to play with and every single one counts, including the address and your sign off at the bottom of the letter.

Entry is just £3.50 and for every single submission we will plant a tree in our Word Forest in Bore, Kenya. We will also send you an electronic certificate with the GPS coordinates of your tree.

Additionally, each Mini-MOLP winner will receive 10 fabulous paperbacks from the Magic Oxygen best sellers list, including a rib-tickling comedy from Bridport Prize winner, Chris Hill, an epic tale of love and liberation from the prolific author, Sue Hampton and many others, with a value of approximately £80.

The winner will also receive a unique prize which will be announced in the final week of each Mini-MOLP. They will include things like:

  • having your name written into one of our forthcoming novels or plays
  • having your winning entry:
    • projected onto a building
    • performed in front of a live audience
    • broadcast on the radio
    • maybe even immortalised on an organic Fairtrade tee-shirt or mug…

All will be revealed in due course.
