“Freedom?” Pamphlet



1. the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.
“we do have some freedom of choice”

2. the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
the shark thrashed its way to freedom”

We want to see the end of another challenging year out on a high with our winter 2021 publication! And this year, we’ve chosen the theme of ‘freedom?’ (And no, the question mark isn’t a typo!)

We’re inviting our talented community to dive deep into the concept of what freedom is to them, and to see what the word itself inspires. Entrants can respond to the prompt in any way they see fit; with poems about emancipation, short stories about first stabs at independence, limericks about liberty, monologues mourning the loss of summer holidays… whatever comes to mind using ‘freedom?’ as a prompt!

A Few T’s & C’s…

We’re requesting a small submission fee of £3 to help support NWS, and cover costs of time spent collating, editing, and designing this release. This can be paid via PayPal quoting “freedom” as reference (or BACS if you’d prefer. Contact admin for the details)

Entries must be no more than 500 words.

It really helps us out when submissions are in standard font (Garamond, Times New Roman, size pt 11) and sent as editable attachments (i.e. Word docs are great, but no pdf’s please!)

Submissions must be sent to admin@nottinghamwritersstudio.co.uk

The publication will be made available as a printed and digital pamphlet in early December 2021. If you have any further questions about the project, please feel free to email us.

You can see our other project publications here.

Deadline: Friday November 5th @ midnight.
