**COMPETITIONS**

The SASH writing competition is now live.  It is open to anyone aged 16 or over in the UK,  from beginners to published authors.

The aim is to raise awareness of youth homelessness within the UK and Yorkshire and to raise funds for SASH. The theme of the competition is ‘homeless’ and can be written in any genre with a maximum of 3000 words. Those in a position to do so are encouraged to make a donation of £10 to accompany their entry. We encourage entries from those who are experiencing or who have previously experienced homelessness themselves.

The competition will be judged by Yorkshire born writer Ross Raisin, author of the award winning ‘God’s Own Country’ and ‘Waterline’.
