Bradt Travel Guides has one again teamed up with the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards to run what they believe is the world’s best competition for unpublished travel writers. Not only are the prizes fabulous, but the competition offers a unique opportunity for unpublished writers to showcase their talents to the professional travel-writing community. Whether you’re an aspiring travel writer or simply enjoy writing about your travels, this is the competition for you!

First prize is a break for two to Lapland, courtesy of Wexas, a commission to write an article about the prize trip for publication in Traveller magazine, and a place on the annual Bradt Travel-Writing Seminar (run in conjunction with Travellers’ Tales, the UK’s leading training agency for aspiring travel writers).

Two runners-up will also receive free places on the Bradt Travel Writing Seminar.

All three finalists will be invited to join the judges at the Edward Stanford Travel-Writing Awards ceremony in London in early 2019, where the winner will be announced.

The subject for this year’s competition is ‘Out of the Blue’.

The Lovely Bones

No, it isn’t relevant but I just couldn’t resist googling Charlotte Beaumont to see how old she is – her portrayal of 14 year old Susie Salmon is all the more impressive. You would swear she really is a stroppy teenager, just becoming aware of burgeoning sexuality,

The good, the bad and the ugly – the unfit, the infirm and the overweight, and unemployed, what on earth makes these men think they could be 1970’s Sheffield’s answer to the Chippendales? Question is, whose bright idea is it? That’d be Gaz, the ringleader….
