I’m delighted to work with bestselling Writing Magazine and my agent, Julia Churchill at A.M. Heath, to offer TWO book prizes for unpublished and unagented authors. I set these book prizes up to help developing writers break into the industry and receive valuable feedback on their work.

It’s been wonderful to see so many positive stories coming from those who have placed or been listed in the book prize – from signing with agents, to publication deals, to gaining confidence in their writing.

The book prizes run every autumn.

Excited to say that the longlists for the 2021 Picture Book Prize and Chapter Book Prize are out!
