In the past few decades, Milton Keynes has evolved into a bold new city with its own cultural identity. Roy Nevitt has been, for many, the city’s cultural godfather, and this year he’s joining MK Lit Fest to speak about the city’s extraordinary evolution – and to launch our new creative writing competition.
For 2024, MK Lit Fest is adopting ‘Tales from the City’ as the theme for a flash fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry competition. As before, we're inviting entries in two age categories - 14-19 and 19+. And we're adding a third genre category: as well as poems (of up to 40 lines) or flash fiction (of up to 500 words), local writers can now submit short pieces of creative non-fiction (up to 500 words). Entry is free, and you may interpret the theme however you wish.
