Still time to enter our writing competition

Jul 12, 2016 | Street Pastors in the arts, What's happening?

The last day for submissions in our new writing competition is 31 July 2016.

We invite you to write 1,000 words – fiction or non-fiction – about people who put the Christian ethos into practical action – Today’s Good Samaritans.

Our partner in this competition, the Association of Christian Writers, is a charitable organisation for writers that offers fellowship, prayerful support and encouragement alongside professional standards of training and advice for writers with a Christian faith.

Writing competition

You may choose to write your competition entry about street pastors, or, perhaps, about school pastors, Foodbank volunteers, befrienders, people who run job clubs or support families in debt. We want you to write creatively about Christians helping in their communities, their challenges and the impact they have. You choose the angle and the point of view!

For specifics, entry fees and details of prizes, please see our How to enter guide.

This competition is open to all and is also advertised on ACW’s website.


Our prizes are small but lovely! You could see your story in a future edition of Christian Writer magazine (subject to the editor’s approval). There are book vouchers for the top three entries plus a fantastic Street Pastors mug!
