From 2020, we are pleased to offer an Emerging Writers' Program.


We invite emerging writers aged 30 and under to send us their writing about football - any individual, team or issue they wish. We will select the top ten for inclusion in an Anthology to be launched at the Festival, with the top two to be invited (all expenses paid) to the Festival to present on their article.

This is a terrific opportunity for emerging writers to have their work recognised, published and brought before other journalists, authors, writers and readers.  

For further information, see our Guidelines and Terms & Conditions here.
