The Dying Matters Coalition is running a new creative writing competition about dying, death and bereavement.

Anyone touched by dying, whether directly or as a relative, friend, colleague or carer is invited to enter.

The judges will be looking for original writing in which the author’s feelings and thoughts about the end of life have been well crafted into a piece of work that attracts the reader’s attention and retains their interest.

The closing date for entries is 31 March, 2012.

The winners will be announced during Dying Matters Awareness Week, 14-20 May 2012.
