The Cascade Aspiring Writers Contest is open to writers of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, and reviews from all universities in Malaysia, China and the United Kingdom. One outstanding entry in each genre will be awarded RM100 (or the equivalent in British Pounds or Chinese Yuan) each academic year, beginning 2015/16.

All published entries for the Autumn and Spring issues will be entered into the Contest.

The winners will be announced during the publication and launch of the Spring issue, and the winning pieces will be featured on Particle‘s home page.

Your submission to Particle will be eligible for the Contest if you are:

• An undergraduate or postgraduate student presently enrolled in any university in Malaysia, China or the United Kingdom.
• Are not affiliated with Particle as student or staff editor, web or publication designer.

The Cascade Aspiring Writers Contest is funded by the Cascade Grant, funding transformative student projects thanks to donations from alumni and friends of the University of Nottingham, as part of the Nottingham Impact Campaign.
