Take part in the second Ovacome Creative Writing Competition for the chance to win some fantastic prizes! You'll be helping to raise funds for our ovarian cancer support services and awareness projects.

First Prize: £250

Runner up prize: £50 Waterstones book voucher

The competition is open to anyone in the UK over the age of 18. You can enter a short story with a maximum word count of 2,000 words.

You can enter any time between 1st June 2021 and 5pm on the 30th September 2021 - the winner and runner up will be announced mid-December 2021.



The theme for the 2021 Ovacome Writing Competition is 'Connected'. This theme can be interpreted in many different ways - the possibilities are endless!. Your story doesn't have to be about health or ovarian cancer. 

Creative writing promotes happiness and mental wellbeing, so this is a great opportunity to express yourself, whether you are an experienced writer or have never written a story before. We can't wait to read your inspiring and creative stories!

We will be announcing the judges of the competition in the near future.
