The Goldenegg Feature Writers’ Competition

Think you’ve got what it takes to be a magazine feature writer? Goldenegg Productions is running a competition for fledging writers in a bid to find the best of Ireland’s writing talent out there. All you need to do is submit a feature of work of no more than 1,200 words, on whatever subject you choose.

Over the next few issues, GALWAYnow and LIMERICKnow Magazines will publish our favourite competition entries from that month, all of which will go forward as shortlists for the competition. Shortlisted story writers will also be in with the chance to become regular contributors to the magazine group. The winner, who will scoop a six-month freelance publishing contract with the magazine, will be announced in the April 2011 issue.

To consider…

• All entries to be no more than 1,200 words

• Pictures/ photographs can also be submitted with the article

• Writing style and tone will be taken into consideration, as will punctuation, grammar etc.

• Deadline for competition entries is February 14 2011

• All entries to be sent to the editor, Jo Lavelle at
