The 2021 Writing Time Award award was open to writers of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. With over 60 entries from writers from all over the county and country, it was a tough job for the judges to decide on an eventual winner and runners-up. The Writing Time Award is jointly organised in partnership between The Reading Room Bookshop and The Dock Arts Centre. The purpose of the award is to provide the winning writer with an opportunity to concentrate on their own work to resolve or develop new writing.
