All you have to do is write one true sentence. 

Write the truest sentence that you know.....

Ernest Hemingway 

Submissions will re-open in 2022

Following collections of creative non-fiction inspired by Gabriel García Márquez and Jane Austen, in 2022 we will pay tribute to one of the inventors of narrative non-fiction - Ernest Hemingway.

 

We'll be looking for any kind of creative non-fiction inspired by the life, work and travels of Hemingway, whether that be a personal essay, a true tale, some memoir or travel writing, or an opinion piece. 

Check back in the new year for further details. 

"Unlike many novels, none of the characters or incidents in this book is imaginary. . . . The writer has attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month’s action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." Hemingway, Green Hills of Africa
