3. Evening Standard Stories Competition 2023

We’re searching for fresh new voices who can take the idea of ‘belonging’ in a surprising direction or tackle it in a way that stops us in our tracks. Perhaps it’s a personal story that holds a universal resonance, or maybe this is a chance to think beyond the real and write a compelling work of fiction. Think about communities, clubs, tribes, groups – parties, football matches, school rooms, chicken shops, barbers, and the joy that comes from being part of something.
