Inspired by Shakespeare
9th January 2015
An exciting competition to celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death is being run by UCLan publishing and the BSA Education Network.
Inspired by Shakespeare: 1st January 2015 to 27th February 2015
UCLan Publishing has teamed up with the British Shakespeare Association Education Network to bring you an exciting opportunity. We are running a national competition in which you will be asked to submit creative pieces that will then go on to form the book, “Inspired by Shakespeare”. We aim to publish in 2016, marking the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death.
The competition is your chance to celebrate Shakespeare’s work in terms of how he has impacted art, literature, culture and YOU. Share your love for Shakespeare through submitting a creative piece, in the form of art or literature inspired by your favourite quote. The quote can be from either his plays, his sonnets or his life as long as it is personal to you. You will also be required to submit a short bio detailing your chosen quote and why this has inspired your creative piece.
Types of work that can be submitted:
1. 2D Visual art (paintings, photography, collage, word art)
2. Text-based work (a poem of up to 1000 words, or a short story between 1500 and 6000 words)
Our vision is to celebrate Shakespeare’s timelessness through inviting individuals from all walks of life to share their personal interpretation of his work.
Send your work and the application form to either the above email address or by post:
