Open to students aged 18 and under, the Guild of Food Writers' WriteIt! competition invites entrants to write a non-fiction feature of around 750-words on any food-related subject. It could be as simple as a descriptive piece based on a person or place that inspired your interest in food; a restaurant review; a report on a visit to a food fair, farmers' market or food shop. Alternatively it could be a campaigning article on any aspect of food that interests, excites or frustrates you.
The judges, Bee Wilson, author and food writer on The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, Lucas Hollweg, food writer and author of Good Things to Eat, and Karen Barnes, Editor of delicious. magazine, are looking for impressive writing skills as well as a real passion, understanding and knowledge of the chosen subject.
The winning entry will be announced in early June and the lucky winner will receive a library of the books shortlisted for the 2012 Guild of Food Writers' Awards, and enjoy a visit to the delicious. magazine's test kitchen. The winning piece will be printed either in delicious. magazine or on its website.
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 11 May 2012.
