TripFiction is offering ‘Sense of Place’ Creative Writing Competition. This autumn, as the world finally takes its first tentative steps into a post pandemic world, we invite adventurous writers to create new stories. Ideas that transport people to a place where imaginations can escape from the claustrophobia of locked down lives and restricted travel.

Competition guidelines:

  • The competition brief: tell us a story – by way of a short story, travelogue or personal memoir – where the sense of place, the destination, is as important a character as the protagonists and plot. It might be set in Shetland, Shanghai, Shoeburyness or Shaker Heights, Ohio. It might be rooted in history, love, humour, romance, crime or food. It’s entirely up to you.
  • But the one thing your entry must include is a strong sense of place: the destination at the heart of your story will be as important a character as the protagonists and the plot.
  • Language – English
  • Word count: maximum 3,000, minimum 750
  • Your competition entry must be original and previously unpublished (commercial or self published), and you must have full authorial rights over the submission
  • Closing date for entries: midnight 15th November, 2020
  • The results will be announced on 13th December, 2020. The judges’ decision is final
  • The cost per entry is £5/US$7, 
  • By submitting an entry, you agree to allow TripFiction, our competition partners and TripFiction’s network of contacts to publish, link to, and promote your story. The copyright remains yours.


  • The winner will receive a cash prize of £300 / US$400, second £150 / US$200 and third £50 / US$67. David will also critique the winning entry.
  • The winning entries will be published on the TripFiction website and promoted on our social media channels. And who knows who else in the publishing industry might be interested in you and your story with a strong sense of place.

About TripFiction:

You love books, right? And travel? Well, you’re in the right place to find thousands of great books set around the world, all with a firm sense of the place the author has set them in.

It might be a novel, a memoir or a travelogue, but each one will transport you to the destination you’re interested in, whether that’s ahead of a trip you’re planning, while you’re already there, or just to pique your literary curiosity, from the comfort of your favourite reading place on a dark winter’s night.

TripFiction was created to make it easy to find that perfect combination of book and destination, and from our database you can easily search by location, title, author and genre.
