in association with Spread the Word

Spread the Word is pleased to be supporting Londnr Magazine to find new, exciting writers for the first print edition of their magazine. It’s a chance for London writers to take a subject that they are passionate about and make it compelling for other readers.

Now in its second year, Londnr Magazine is launching a print version to run alongside its strong digital presence. A curated publication focused on the arts, lifestyle and culture in our capital, Londnr’s ethos is firmly rooted in supporting, nurturing and providing a platform for writers.

Committed to promoting talented emerging writers, Londnr is now seeking new voices to join their staff writers. This competition is an excellent opportunity for London-based writers (or writers with access to London) to gain broad exposure to their work and join a vibrant community of creatives at Londnr Magazine.

The winner will receive:

  • A fully paid, feature-length article published in the first print issue of our forthcoming A/W 2017 magazine, to be distributed across the UK.
  • In addition, the winner will be offered a paid contract for a set of three articles for the Londnr online .
  • Mentoring with experienced editors to produce all articles to the highest possible standard whilst remaining in keeping with the author’s voice.
  • Free ticket (with plus 1) to the launch party of our first print issue.
  • Free ticket (with plus 1) to two future Londnr Events of their choice.
  • One year membership to Spread the Word’s London Writers Network
