The new JKP Writing Prize is a unique chance to get your work published in a book for the first time. They’re looking for original, own voice stories on the theme of Trans Everyday. What’s it like to be trans today? Successful writers will have their piece published in an anthology (paperback and eBook), as well as win a £150 cash prize.
