WILD WORDS Writing Competition
WellBeing WILD Magazine is created by millennials,
for millennials, and this competition celebrates millennial voices

This month the WellBeing WILD Media Group are launching WILD WORDS – an opportunity for millennial writers to have their say and get published.

Millennial writers (established or just starting out) are asked to submit 800 words on one (or more) of four topics that are close to the hearts and minds of WILD readers – a Personal/Life Journey, Political/Social Commentary, Environmental Issues, or Fiction/Short Story.

Deputy Editor Charlie Hale says “We are excited to be unearthing some new voices and fresh perspectives next year. For those who are entering WILD Words: tell us something new, be punchy and make every word count – we can’t wait to read your words!”

The best articles from each topic will be commissioned and published in Wild. The best writers will also be contacted to pitch ideas for WellBeing Wild (commissioned), write regularly or develop their initial story to be print-ready.  For some entrants, this will be a genuine pathway to regular publication.  Entries close on 28th January 2021.  “A year after launching WILD with the millennial reader in mind, I’m so excited to be giving our readers a platform to share their own stories.” said Editor Kate Duncan.

About WILD

Millennials have so much to say – and Wild is increasingly where they want to share it.  This is because Wellbeing Wild celebrates millennial voices. We provide a platform for discussion and connection; a place to push the boundaries of the status quo.

We don’t shy away from the icky stuff; we’re loud, we’re proud and we take up space. We rival the constraints of the norm and the human form – we know anything is possible. We exist to reinforce the purity of one message: stay wild. Don’t let life tame you. Stay open and stay curious.

We’re politically engaged, ambitious, career-driven, arts and culture enthusiasts and we care about social issues. We’re media consumers and have a sustainable and global mindset. We’re style-conscious, educated and inclusive. We love to optimise our life and work routines for the better. We are forging a new way forward.
