Manuscript and the University of Brighton join forces to run a creative handwriting competition
Pen company Manuscript and the University of Brighton have teamed up to promote handwriting among budding writers – and there is still time to take part in their #creativehandwriting competition!
Two prizes will be awarded – Best Prose and Best Handwriting – so if you are a student or a budding writer (or both!) just write by hand a 500 word story with the theme ‘THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT…’
Then scan or take a picture of your efforts and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 30th November 2015.
Don’t forget to share it on social media with the hashtag #creativehandwriting and tag @uniofbrighton and @manuscriptpenco
The winners will be chosen by Manuscript Pen Company and the University of Brighton and will receive prizes to the value of £50 (in Manuscript’s products and vouchers for the course book for students of the creative writing course at the University of Brighton).
Do help to spread the word about this initiative… Promote #handwriting #writingmatters!
Why all this fuss about handwriting?
For a lot of reasons:
Don’t stop writing with pens on paper, keep handwriting alive!
This is another initiative promoted by Manuscript Pen Company under the framework of the BBC Get Creative Campaign.
