    Closes at midnight on 30 June 2014


                Regrets? I’ve had a few...

    Life is shockingly unpredictable and too often ends before we’ve told our nearest and dearest how much we love them, registered a will to avoid muddle when we’ve gone, visited a neglected relative or got back in touch with someone we treated badly.

    The aim of the Dying Matters Coalition’s While There’s Still Time competition is to generate shared experience that will help people to set about putting things right, plan their future and get the best from the rest of life.

    Anyone touched by regret or reconciliation - the outcome for example of a family rift, professional row, absence of a will or of someone’s failure to make their wishes known - is urged to submit their story.

    The judges will be looking for original prose or poetry in which the author’s feelings and thoughts have been well crafted into a succinct piece of work that attracts the reader’s attention and retains their interest.

    While There’s Still Time is expected to attract public attention and may lead to publication of a selective anthology.

    This stimulating competition is open now and closes at midnight on 30 June 2014.
    Winners will be announced in the autumn on the Dying Matters website .

           1st prize £200, 2nd prize £100, 3rd prize £50, plus highly commended certificates *
           No entry fee * Entries must be original and unpublished * Maximum 2,500 words of prose or 40 lines of poetry, in English * You may submit up to 3 entries * Entry by email or post * If unable to write yourself, a transcription will be accepted * Do not use real names in your story or poem * All entries considered for publication * Entries to be received by midnight on 30 June 2014.

    For full details including terms & conditions visit  or call 0800 021 44 66.

    While There’s Still Time follows on from the Coalition’s hugely successful Final Tweets and Final Chapters projects. Final Chapters attracted 1,400 entries, a selection of which is published by Jessica Kingsley – visit,

    The Dying Matters Coalition was set up by the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC).
    NCPC is a registered charity no. 1005671 and a company limited by guarantee no.2644430.
