Swiss Creative Writing Prize

Swiss Creative Writing PrizeIn the 2018-2019 school year we launched the annual Swiss Creative Writing Prize for high-school-aged students in the Swiss public education system. The aim of the prize is to help students develop their thinking, self-expression and creative skills as well as their ability to write in English. Ultimately, we hope that students will develop a love for language and literature.

Any high-school-aged student in the Swiss public education system is invited to submit work in the following categories:

Short Story (up to 1,000 words, either fiction or narrative non-fiction)
Poetry (up to two poems of any length)

The Prize judges will choose up to 10 students for a shortlist. These students will be invited to a writing workshop with the judges in mid-May 2019. The winner will be announced at the Reception following the workshop. The winning student in each category will receive CHF 500 (total) in book tokens and cash.
