Words for the Wounded is a charity that raises money via writing prizes and donations for the rehabilitation of our wounded servicemen and women. In this, our second year, we are supporting the Creative Arts Unit at Help for Heroes' Tedworth House Recovery Centre, a centre which helps wounded service personnel gain independence and confidence.
Enter the 2014 W4W Writing Prize and you not only help others but could win the £250 1st Prize, the £100 2nd Prize or the £50 3rd Prize. (Dates for the competition are shown below).
Writers' FORUM will once again be publishing the winning entries, which is wonderful news.
Just write no more than 400 words of fiction, or a real life tale, or a poem on the theme of ‘The Journey’ - which can be a physical or emotional journey. The Entry Fee is £4.50
We are grateful to Freddie Hodgson, author of Putney Ferret, for his donation towards the prize money, and to Kris Dore and Lee Read who completed the Eton Dorney Triathalon in support of Words for the Wounded.
2014 is the commemoration of the start of the 1st World War. Let's help to ease the suffering of our present day wounded.
“Emma and I feel so strongly that we must never forget the debt we all owe to these brave men and women. We are honoured to be involved in this wonderful charity” - Julian Fellowes, Patron
