Who may enter
Entrants may come from any country and must have reached the age of sixteen.

The competition is organised by The Book Collector, a London based literary journal.

You are asked to describe, in 1,000 words, an imaginary banquet for book-lovers. Your characters can be alive, dead or fictional, from any period, of any age, colour or creed.

Imagine you’ve got Virginia Woolf chatting to Germaine Greer - or Thomas Jefferson to Malcolm X. Maybe Peter Pan is sitting beside Evelyn Waugh. What would they eat and drink? Might they wish to dance afterwards? Has Elizabeth Bennet remembered her dancing shoes?

Entries should ideally be between 700 - 800 words.

Only one submission per applicant will be considered.

Entry fees
The competition is free to enter.

The winner will receive £500.

The winning entry will be printed in The Book Collector.
