We're having a makeover!

We're currently making our wonderful, new website sparkle and will be back on National Writing Day - 24 June 2020. As part of this, we're changing our name from Literary Lightbox to Lightbox Originals, reflecting our commitment to supporting and promoting voices from all backgrounds.

Submissions open!

If you would like to write an article to be published as part of our relaunch, submissions are open until 15th May 2020. For details, please visit the Lightbox Originals Writing Community on Facebook. It's free to join and apply to write for us. 

Other writing opportunities 

Our writing opportunity lists will be back when our makeover is complete. In the meantime, we're still actively sharing great writing competitions, opportunities and writerly inspiration on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

Want to be one of the first to hear when submissions open and we're live again? Please subscribe to our newsletter below. Not only will you receive inspiring words of writerly wisdom every week but you'll also hear the news first too.
