Description

New Writing and Book Awards Aims To Change Writing Careers

The Page Turner Awards aims to help writers and authors to get discovered with possible literary agency representation and potentially taking a published book from page to film.

The awards were created to change writing careers with success stories from the most impressive first 10 pages submitted. The prestigious judging panel, made up of successful award-winning authors, literary agents and publishers, is looking for vivid, cinematic writing with captivating characters and unique voices.

The Page Turner Writing Award offers writers and authors the chance to enter the first 10 pages of a completed, unpublished fiction or non-fiction manuscript, where a literary agent will read the work with a chance to get it published. Submissions open from 15 February until 30 April 2020.

The Page Turner eBook Award is for any published fiction and non-fiction books which will be read the judging panel of literary experts. Nominations are now open until 30 April 2020.

The awards welcomes both emerging writers and established authors who can enter a new, unpublished completed manuscript for our Writing Award Competition or a published book for our eBook Award. All genres for fiction and non-fiction are invited.

Founder of The Page Turner Awards, Paula Wynne said: “When I was searching for awards to enter my novels, I found there was a gap in the market for writing awards that could change a writer’s career, so I decided to set up an awards program that gave writers and authors the chance to get discovered.”

The prestigious judging panel boasts publishers and literary agents, and includes Kimberley Atkins, Publisher for Hodder & Stoughton in London, Karly Caserza Literary Agent with Fuse Literary Agency, Susan Mears from Susan Mears Literary & Film Agency and Louise Buckley from the Zeno Agency.

The Page Turner Awards is also delighted to have multi award-winning and bestselling children’s author Geraldine McCaughrean, who was selected from thousands of authors to write the Peter Pan sequel, Peter Pan in Scarlet, along with Louise Keenan, a media lawyer at law firm CMS, and award-winning authors, Natalie Trice, Abiola Bello and Allison Maruska judging the eBook Award.

Winners of the Writing Award may receive representation by a literary agent. Winners of the eBook Award will receive a publicity campaign for their book, and the chance to secure film rights for their book. There’s also a line-up of valuable writing and authorship prizes for short-listed submission of both awards.
