Literature Works First Page Writing Prize 2015

------------------------------

Literature Works started the First Page Writing Prize because there was nothing like it available in the competition market. The publishing industry is extremely tough for new writers to break into.


The First Page Prize addresses together the key challenges of the literature sector and publishing industry; how to find high impact writing which might have publishing future, how to make that impact immediately and how writers might finance time to spend researching and writing new work. 

  • Seeking superb opening pages of unpublished novels from promising writers around the country. 
  • Looking for openings of a novel that make us want to read on.
  • Looking for that compelling first page of a novel that captures the imagination!

Tracey Guiry, CEO of Literature Works: “We are delighted that the First Page Prize continues to go from strength to strength and it’s always an exciting prospect to look forward to finding new voices. Our previous winners have all gone on to great things and I have no doubt this year’s winner will be equally successful”. 

The top prize is £1500 and a report from literary agent, Clare Wallace.

There are also two runner-up prizes of £400 and £200.

This year’s judge is acclaimed novelist, Imogen Robertson, who is currently Writer in Residence at Plymouth University.

The entry fee is upto £6. See guidelines page for More info

All proceeds go to support our Grassroots Literature Fund which provides small grants to community projects to encourage more reading and writing activity across South West England.

The deadline is Wednesday 30 September
