Novel Competition

Submissions open until July 30th

As part of our pledge to support artists and creatives during and after the current Coronavirus pandemic, we will commission 3 novels to be professionally published via Kurious Press. Submissions are now open until July 30th and the chosen three will be announced in August.

Entry Requirements: A completed novel of over 60,000 words.

What we need from you: The first chapter (up to 3,000 words) with a 'full spoiler synopsis' (1-2 pages)  and a personal biog (max 100 words). You can add links to previous work/accolades if you like.

NOTE: Please place all entry requirements in one document (either word or PDF) for submission. Also, whilst multiple works about the current pandemic will be produced in the following years, this is not necessarily what we are looking for. 

ALL PROCEEDS FROM COMPETITION ENTRIES WILL BE DONATED TO THE SOUTH YORKSHIRE CREATIVES COVID-19 HARDSHIP FUND. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FUND HERE.
