WRITING COMPETITION

CALLING ALL WRITERS AND POETSRegulus Press and the Katherine Mansfield House invite you to enter the 2021 Literary Taxidermy Writing Competition for your chance to win up to $500 in cash as well as publication in the next Literary Taxidermy Anthology. Our previous competitions were such a success, we couldn't wait to come back!

This year we're heading south—far south!—running the competition in association with a New Zealand arts exhibition called STILL LIFE | WILD PLACES, showcasing a new generation of contemporary women artists, including taxidermists, inspired by the life and works of writer Katherine Mansfield. (You can learn more about the exhibition here.)

To enter this year's international competition, you must produce an original story or poem of up to 2000 words. Your work can be any genre, and in any style. The catch: We provide your opening and closing lines chosen from a classic work of literature. You provide the rest. Follow the links below to learn how to enter, and join our mailing list for the latest updates. All submissions must be received before 26 September 2021 at 12:00 PM PDT.
