The Return of the Great Clarendon House Writing Challenge 2021


It’s back!

Are you ready for one of the most exciting and challenging writers’ competitions in the world?

The idea is to find TEN CONTESTANTS who then undertake a series of specialised tasks, month by month, in each issue of the Inner Circle Writers’ Magazine. There is NO FEE to enter the challenge. As each month goes by, the number of contestants reduces, based on votes from the magazine’s readers who judge how each of them accomplishes each task.

By the end of the competition, ONE CONTESTANT will be crowned the WINNER of the Great Clarendon House Writing Challenge.

The winner will be entitled to:

  • the offer of a book publishing contract with Clarendon House Publications

  • a free webpage on the Clarendon House website through which to feature their works (whether published by Clarendon House or not)

  • a free full-page ad in the Inner Circle Writers’ Magazine for a whole year

  • free marketing advice, including cover design, blurb, author platform tips and so on

  • a free
