2022 John McGivering Prize Entry

The Kipling Society now invites prose submissions for our Writing Competition, funded by the generosity of the late John McGivering, on the theme of Animals. Entries may be fiction, memoir or travel, and should address the theme of animals of any kind, in any way the author chooses. They should also be somehow connected, whether directly or obliquely, with Rudyard Kipling’s writings and/or his life. The competition will open on 1 March 2022, and will close on 1 May 2022 at 11.59 pm, BST. The Rules are set out in our News page.

The entry charge for each entry is £8.00, payable below. Please also give your name and email address.
