RSL A Room of My Own Writing Competition

25 October 2019 Share


This year marks 90 years since the publication of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, and to celebrate this, the RSL have launched a series of projects asking what writers need to work today. 

The A Room of My Own competition is open for 14- to 18-year-olds to write an essay with what they think they need to ensure their creative futures in literature. 

Their essays might explore:

• what they think a writer needs to work;

• how they imagine their future as a writer; or

• how writing from the past can influence new writing now.

The winner will receive National Book Tokens for themselves and for their school library, and a selection of essays will also be published online on the RSL website.  

The deadline is Thursday 31 October 2019. 

Full T&Cs are available to view on the RSL website here.
