Record number of entries for the Student New Angle Prize

28 Feb 2019 10:00AM

The Student New Angle Prize, which runs alongside the nationally recognised New Angle Prize for literature, promotes and celebrates both a love of good writing and also the diverse voices across the entire student community. 

The SNAP competition is exclusively for University of Suffolk students and offers all students, from any course, the chance to enter their original writing. 

Each year a new judge is chosen and this year the judge is renowned literary agent Rachel Calder from The Sayle Literary Agency.

The 2019 competition is now closed and we are delighted to announce that we have received a record number of entries this year. 

English lecturer and novelist, Amanda Hodgkinson has said, 'This year we have received a number of entries across the different Schools within the University. It is great to see so many students getting inspired to write about our region.'

Today we can reveal the prize longlist nominated writers for SNAP Writing Awards 2019. Watch this space for forthcoming news of the shortlist and winners!
