Immortalising mortality

Charles No Comments


The Dying Matters Coalition is holding its very own Death Booker (well, something like that). Dying Matters is offering a prize for “new creative writing about dying, death and bereavement. Anyone touched by dying, whether directly or as a relative, friend, colleague or carer, can enter.”

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


1st: £200; 2nd: £100; 3rd: £50; plus highly commended certificates. All entries will also be considered for publication online or in print form.

The winners will be announced during Dying Matters Awareness Week, 14-20 May 2012.

The project could lead to the publication of a selective anthology and the formation of an archive, and we expect it to generate considerable public interest.
