Aesthetica Magazine's creative writing competition "offers both existing and aspiring writers the chance to showcase their work to a wider, international audience".
Now in its sixth year, the competition "celebrates and nurtures creative talent", inviting writers to submit imaginative and original work (in either the poetry or the short fiction category).
Prizes include £500 prize money, publication in the Aesthetica Creative Writing Annual and a selection of books from partner organisations.
Submissions previously published elsewhere are accepted and the deadline for entries is 31 August 2013. For more information, visit http://www.aestheticamagazine.com/creativewriting.
