Isle of Wight writers and poets are invited to enter all forms of poetry, flash fiction, short stories and even novellas up to 10,000 words for The Paul Cave Prize for Literature.

The competition, established in 2023 by Tim Saunders Publications, is in memory of Paul Astley Cave-Browne-Cave, an inspirational magazine and book publisher.

Winners of each category will take home a cash prize, with the best novella securing £100, the best short story £50, the best poem £25 and the best flash fiction £25.

Successful entries will also receive a complimentary copy of The Paul Cave Prize for Literature 2023 book.
