The Octagon is passionate about developing new writing. Every year they run a competition called Best of Bolton, that celebrates outstanding original work by writers of all different ages, backgrounds and experiences.
The next Best of Bolton will be Sat 10 November 2018. Why not have a go at taking part?
You can submit your writing for Best of Bolton in any short form – story, poem, monologue, sketch, or a short extract from a novel or play, but it must be no more than 700 words in length or for poetry no more than 30 lines.
“Everything we receive will be read, and, although we cannot return manuscripts or feedback on work that isn’t selected, the forty best pieces will be read onstage in one of two performances by professional or trainee actors – (whilst our theatre across the road is being excitingly re-created) – in the beautiful Lecture Theatre at Bolton Library.”
