Hot Press and Creative Ireland Competition For Students

Deadline: 10 Feb 2018

Hot Press and Creative Ireland Join Forces For Write Here, Write Now, Ireland’s Biggest Ever Writing Competition For Students. The Theme: Social Media: A Writer’s Tale

Over the past fifteen years, with the rise of social media, the most extraordinary changes have taken place in society. In terms of the way we communicate, a whole new  world has opened up as people make use of Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, and a whole host of other platforms and apps.   

In 500 words or less, we’re asking entrants to lay down their vision, create a fictional world, or reflect on the theme of social media and its impact on our lives in whatever way they think works best. Competition entries can be in the form of stories, poems, songs, monologues, film scripts – or whatever creative medium the entrant chooses.

The competition will be a test of creativity, originality, style – and of the ability to entertain or enthral.
