Established in 1998 as the home of creative writing within the Department of English at Manchester Metropolitan University, the Manchester Writing School is, today, a thriving centre of creative excellence, working to benefit the literary community at large.

In 2008, funded by the University's Enterprise Fellowship scheme, the Manchester Writing School launched the Manchester Writing Competition – a new literary prize designed to attract and celebrate the best new writing from around the world, and to establish Manchester as the focal point for a major literary award.
Each year, the competition aims to award a substantial cash prize to the overall winner, or winners, as well as a bursary for study at MMU to an entrant aged 18 to 25 as part of our Young Writer of the Year Award.

The poems can be on any subject, and written in any style, but must be new work, not published or submitted for consideration elsewhere (including blogs and social networking sites) or have been broadcast, or be submitted for publication or consideration elsewhere, for the duration of the Manchester Poetry Prize (which is deemed to begin on the date of entry and end on Friday 22nd October 2010).

Eligible entrants are asked to indicate on the entry form if they would like to be considered for the Manchester Young Writer of the Year Award in addition to the main prize.
