Birmingham Muslim Writers Awards 2009

Last year, I briefly mentioned the Birmingham Muslim Writers Awards, a project that started in 2006 with the goal of highlighting new literary talent in Birmingham, UK. Since then (if I've understood correctly), the project now targets Muslim writers across the UK (not just in Birmingham). The group that runs this project offers awards in several categories, including the following:

Non Fiction
Short Story
Under 16s
Best Children's Story
Academic Writing

The group started accepting entries for 2009 back in June, so check out the new website for details on how to make a submission. Also see the list of winners for 2008. This is a competition open to both published and unpublished writers.
