panoramic view of Parracombe

Parracombe is a small community, nestled in the hills of Exmoor National Park. It is home to a number of creative people working in the Arts, advertising, literature and journalism where hill-farming traditions thrive alongside these newer professions.

This prize has sprung from a group of people within the community whose love of literature and writing has evolved into this open competition.

The competition is run for, and on on behalf of, the Parracombe Community Trust. Any correspondence other than competition entries should be addressed to: Parracombe Prize, Parracombe Community Trust, The Village Hall, Church Lane, Parracombe, Devon, EX31 4RJ, England. Any profits resulting from this competition and subsequent book sales are solely for the benefit of Parracombe Community Trust. The Trust website can be found here.
