Writing Competition prizes!

Calling all writers!

I am sure you have already started to think about your future Short story and poem!
There will be two winners of this competition, one Irish - who will receive a free French course, of his/her choice, at the Alliance Francaise and one French - who will be able to choose from a wide range of creative writing courses at the Irish writers’ Center.

All the best for this challenge!


  1. It's a pity that only French or Irish people can participate. I am Brazilian and have a good short story about tango in Paris, in French language.
