Green Stories Project

Green Stories writing competitions are a series of free writing competitions across various formats to solicit stories that showcase what a sustainable society might look like. Open to all. Entries must be in English and unpublished. The mission is to create a cultural body of work that entertains and informs about green solutions, inspires green behaviour and raises awareness of the necessary transformations towards a sustainable economy.

Green Stories also engages writers, academics and policymakers in sustainability projects such as our COP27 Anthology project, which will be made available free of charge to thousands of delegates at the conference in November.

The competition is being run by the University of Southampton and is led by Prof Denise Baden,  Professor in Sustainable Business. Assisting are Carole Burns, Head of Creative Writing and Dr Aiysha Jahan, a published writer with a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Southampton.
