About the competition
All of us, at some point, are involved in difficult conversations. Whether that’s tough talks with clients or bosses, or break-ups, or coming out, or telling someone you love them, or giving advice to that friend who just doesn’t want to hear it. Some conversations are even more difficult, as sufferers of any potentially serious illness will know.
But one thing’s for sure, these conversations are fascinating. So much so that we’ve launched a writing competition on the theme of difficult conversations. The winning entries will be collected and released as a book (paperback and digital) during gynaecological cancer awareness month in September, with proceeds going to women’s cancer charity, The Eve Appeal.
The competition is open to anyone who works in the marketing (any discipline) or media industries here in the UK. We’ve set these parameters because we know that those working in our sectors enjoy writing more than most. According to our research, 78% of marketing and media professionals love to write and, of those, 64% have harboured ambitions of being a published author at some stage.
