Welcome to Words for the Wounded!
Words for the Wounded raises money via writing prizes, events and donation to help wounded servicemen and women. Every penny is important, and every penny we raise goes to where it should, because the organisers, (the three grannies) absorb all expenses.
Our principal fundraising plank continues to be writing prizes and we consider our aim is to encourage aspiring writers as well as raising money. To this end we are now holding an annual LitFest day in addition to our Independant Author Award.
An Award for independent authors in 4 categories:
Fiction, Non-Fiction, Fiction for young adults, & Picture Books for Children.
Prizes for 1st and 2nd place winners for each of the 4 categories are:
A Review and a Day in the Life feature published in Frost Magazine
The Entry Fee is £12.50
We do hope that you will continue to support us as you have been doing. As you know the grannies are all volunteers and, we repeat, every penny raised goes to the cause. Also, as you may know, the average age of those with life changing injuries is 25 which means that they have long lives to live and they deserve the best.
We can all help them to achieve their full potential, and lead confident and independent lives and it is the least we can do.
