Voices 2024 entry form

We’re delighted to announce, Voices 2024 is OPEN!

We can’t wait to read your poems, raps, songs, stories and more. The theme this year is ‘what makes me different?’ and your creative writing piece can be up to 500 words long. Get your thinking caps on and submit your piece, which must be your own work and not mention other people by name, by midnight on Sunday 17 December 2023.

You could win a prize
Our 24 shortlisted writers will all win a book voucher, and our category winners will scoop Love to Shop vouchers worth £25, £50 or £100.  All our shortlisted candidates (plus two guests each) will be invited to our awards ceremony in London.

New for 2024 – can you design our cover image?
If writing isn’t your thing, don’t worry – you can still take part! This year, we’re also looking for artistic creations for the front cover of our Voices 2024 official publication. Anyone aged 4-25 can enter, and the winner plus a guest will be invited to our awards ceremony and awarded a £50 voucher. Your piece will need to tie in with this year’s theme, ‘what makes me different?’
