This year The London Society aims to celebrate the city in all its life, charm and mystery, with a writing competition “Love Letters to London”. We want you to tell us why you love this city. Write us up to 500 words around the theme of “recovery and resilience”.
We’re biased, but we believe London is the greatest city in the world. It is the nation’s capital, but woven from hundreds of separate communities; the economic powerhouse of the UK with a richly diverse demographic. It has an amazing history, but is constantly evolving; it offers world class art, music, theatre and other live performances. It is ‘home’ to nine million people but attracts dozens of millions more each year as visitors.
To fit with The London Society motto of ‘valuing the past; looking to the future’, entrants can write on any aspect of London’s past, present or future. It might be reportage, an historical essay, a ‘think piece’, a spot of futurology, a work of fiction, a poem. We are open to all forms and styles. Entries can have been published elsewhere, but must fit the brief and have been written in 2021.
