ELLE Talent Contest 2013

Write for ELLE

Great news! Our annual talent competition is now open. So grab yourself a September issue, find out what this year’s writing subject is and get typing, immediately. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

At ELLE it is our mission to discover and cheerlead for future stars. For the past month ELLE HQ has been packed with 11 talented interns (you can see the results of all their hard work in our October issue and follow their journey on their blog) and now we’re on the hunt for the writing stars of tomorrow.


If you think you’ve got what it takes to pen the sort of witty, evocative words you see in ELLE we want to hear from you.

The winner and four runners up will be handpicked by a panel of dedicated experts and each will be mentored by one of the panel. The winner will also see their piece published in the January 2014 issue of ELLE and be offered a place on Faber Academy’s brilliant novel-writing course.
