The Val Wood Prize 2018: Women's Writes is now closed for entries.


To celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote, we have decided to focus on strong and formidable women in this year’s competition, hence the title, Women’s Writes. The competition has now gone to judging and the winner will be announced at a special ceremony at Hull Central Library on 20 October at 2pm.


Val has been invited to launch the East Riding's new literature celebration,

Festival of Words on 18 October.  Click Here for tickets.
