Report for Yeovil Literary Prize "I can't thank the organisers and judges of The Yeovil Literary Prize enough for giving international writers in every corner of the world a platform to share work and hopefully shine!
From a local heartfelt aim we open our arms to the world of writing. When the long lists emerged from the pleasurable task of judging the four categories, details of the authors generated a sense of pride in our competition.
The written word enables authors to conjure scenarios wherever they happen to be in the world. Lists are generally avoided by writers as they tend to distract from the story, but we thought we should share a list of where our writers live whilst juggling their winning words.
We have been delighted to see the rise in entry numbers, and the parts of the world from which they have come. We learn so much from the voices writers create to people novels and short stories; the places in which you set your stories and the cultural differences telling a story in a slightly different way.
We are always left wondering where novels will take the readers, and inspired by the myriad styles of writing in our Writing Without Restrictions category. Thank you to everyone who entered this year and we hope you continue to find our international writing competition is the place for you to share your work and to try for the highest goal possible, publication.
We know agents watch our site and we are pleased to be instrumental in bringing the writer and the publisher together. Novel Brianna Beerhler was certainly a superb find for our novel category judge.
She had probably the hardest decisions to make this year as the standard was so extremely high and the genres so diverse. There were the top three, but another novel kept jockeying for position so Brianna made it Very Highly Commended. From these the winning novels were selected based on their ability to sustain and develop those ideas, creating works that keep the reader turning and returning to pages, well and deep into the night.
The strength of a novel is the needing to know what happens next; the page turning urge that keeps us involved. This year we have seen two past entrants succeed by having their novels published. David Young has seen the second of his six-book publishing deal, Stasi Wolf, follow the success that his first book Stasi Child, which came third in the Yeovil Literary Prize, enjoyed.
Short Story We love everything that our judge, Anna Wilson, writes. I feel honoured to have been asked to judge this excellent competition. This category is far harder to perfect than people realise, so mastering the craft of the short story is challenging for any writer.
Poetry This year there were just under entries and our judge, David Wheatley, read and judged them all.
We were delighted to have such a highly regarded published poet as part of our competition. Above all, they achieved the moment of lift-all in which true poetry achieves its being, whether in the artful line-break, the revelatory image, the startling rhyme, or the startling last line.
Thank you David for being such a knowledgeable and talented judge. Writing Without Restrictions What a pleasure it has been to have Kiran Millwood Hargrave as our judge for this category.
Kiran won the poetry category of Yeovil Literary Prize and then went on to become a best-selling, award-winning novelist. Her range of writing made Kiran the ideal judge for our wide-open Writing Without Restriction category. Thank you for being the perfect judge.
We receive amazing comments about this exciting opportunity for every style of writing to be entered, and were overwhelmed by the variety and superb quality of writing in every genre possible.
Freedom to write is vitally important and must be nurtured for all age groups. As children we usually start with a diary; we then explore poetry and write extremely short tales; we end up as novelists, poets and writers, that is the spirit of the written word. Texts and blogs are fun and another expression of words.
Use social media — tell the world. We hope agents and publishers who read our website will give those who are recognised a further chance of success.Due to near maximum capacity of class space and/or campus logistics, Summit Academy will now accept registrations for this campus by interview only.

Cuneiform or Sumero-Akkadian cuneiform, one of the earliest systems of writing, was invented by the Sumerians.
It is distinguished by its wedge-shaped marks on clay tablets, made by means of a blunt reed for a stylus. The name cuneiform itself simply means "wedge shaped".. Emerging in Sumer in the late fourth millennium BC (the Uruk IV period) to convey the Sumerian language, which was a.
