Green Stories Writing Competitions solicit stories that embed green solutions in the context of an engaging plot aimed at a mainstream audience. It is run by the The University of Southampton and is free to enter with prizes. Anyone (any country, any age) can enter as long as the entry is in English and it has not been published/produced.

The next competition asks for a radio play or series and the deadline to submit is 26th August 2021. Permitted formats are a 45 minute drama, or 6 x 30 minutes series or 5 x 15 minute series. 

The winning entry will receive a free script appraisal and treatment by the Literary Consultancy, plus will be sent to production companies for consideration.
