THIS IS EXCITING – a potentially life-changing competition exclusively for un-agented, unpublished writers of colour. The winner will receive a two-book publishing contract from Avon with an advance against royalties of £10,000 (£5,000 per book), an additional £3,000 grant to support their writing, and representation fromMushens Entertainment.

Work in Progress is absolutely fine as long as you can submit the first three chapters or 50 pages of your unpublished novel (up to 10,000 words) during the submissions window which runs between 11thJanuary-28thFebruary 2021.
