Springs may be overrated but the fact that they have captured the imagination of generations of artists is not. Moreover, the arrival of spring also marks the time for English Literary Society’s LitFest. This year we bring you a creative writing competition that has nothing to do with sonnets, as you will find out if you go through the guidelines and the topics: Sonnets of Spring. And we are very happy to announce that Samit Basu, the author of the critically acclaimed GameWorld Trilogy has consented to adjudicate the contest! So if you needed any more encouragement to participate, you have it now. The last date for submitting your entries is 22nd March 2015. You can mail us your entries at firstname.lastname@example.org. The best submissions will be published on the blog and the writers will get to choose their own animal pen names for the blog (they can also publish it with their own names if they want). The winners will be awarded books as prizes.
