The Cuckoo Quarterly Prize is an award of £50 which will be given to the best piece of writing in every issue. The prize recipient will be chosen by the Editorial Committee, the panel of young writers who select submissions, edit work and direct the magazine.
To launch the award, the committee have chosen Dawn by Hazel Atkinson (published in Issue 6) to receive the first award.
The THEME for issue 7 is LETTERS.
For the themed section we will accept writing of any form (poetry/non-fiction/script/illustration etc) relating to the chosen subject. Interesting or unusual angles on this subject are encouraged! Please mention in the accompanying email that the work is intended for the themed section.
All work submitted to Cuckoo Quarterly will be considered for the prize, providing the writer is aged 19 or under, resident in the UK and it is original work. So if you're a young writer with work in your bottom drawer, or if you know a young writer who needs some “encouragement” to submit, now is the perfect time to send Cuckoo Quarterly your work.
