About Us


Henshaw Press was launched by a small group of writers, editors, lecturers and of course readers who wished to actively support creative writing. They ran quarterly competitions throughout the year with closing dates at the end of March, June, September and December. 


In 2023, due to illness and retirement, the running of the competition was transferred to Hobeck Books, a small, independent publisher based in Staffordshire. Some of the existing competition judges and critique writers continue to work with Hobeck. There are also some new faces to join the team, all published writers.


The format of the competition continues, with four competitions every year.


The aim is to encourage as wide a range of writing as possible and competitions are  open for any subject and any style.

The competitions are non-profit making for us, profits, from September 2019 onwards, will be given to ‘Medecins sans Frontiers’.


It is our intention to produce books of the prize winning stories. Therea re four anthologies published: Henshaw Treats, Henshaw Two, Henshaw Three and Henshaw Four. Henshaw Five published in June 2023.
