Inspired By My Museum’ was launched at the Museums Association Conference and Exhibition 2013 in Liverpool and is calling for budding writers to record and share their personal reactions, connections or experiences inspired by a visit to a museum.


Entries can be in the form of a poem, short story or reportage and people can take their inspiration from the museum space, architecture, design, a specific object or objects within the museum, or even the museum/exhibition curator. The competition is open to anyone aged 16 or over.

The last date for entries to Inspired By My Museum is Monday 10 February 2014. The winning entries will be published in a special commemorative book next year.
