It’s Time to Enter the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize Again!
Published: 01/07/2015 by Magic Oxygen
Yes indeed, MOLP2 is finally here and we have another £3,000 in the prize fund!
The second Magic Oxygen Literary Prize is open for entries of short stories and poetry from 1st July and will remain open until the 31st December 2015.
MOLP1 received almost 800 entries from 31 countries and had a prize fund of £3,000 paid to the writers of the best short stories and poems as decreed by 22 esteemed international judges.
Our fabulous anthology features the very best of them all and contains the top ten pieces in each category; if you’re planning to enter this year, it makes for invaluable research material and is a cracking read too. You can order it from us in paperback or e-book, or request it from your local book shop.
MOLP is a truly unique writing competition as we plant a tree for every single entry and another for every anthology bought.
We now have around 1,500 trees in our Word Forest in Bore, Kenya and are also funding the build of an urgently needed classroom there too.
We are very excited about boosting that number with MOLP2 by doing exactly the same again and continuing to support the remote community of Bore in many ways.
