paler

 

The Bath Children’s Novel Award is a writing competition for unsigned novelists. This years judge is literary agent Sallyanne Sweeney of Mulcahy Associates Literary Agency (MMB Creative). And the sponsor is Cornerstones Literary Consultancy. The winner will receive £2,000 (approximately $2599 US) and a shortlist prize of £500 (approximately $649 US) Cornerstones Literary Consultancy vouchers.

This is The Bath Children’s Novel Award’s third year. It was created in 2015 to support and spotlight unsigned children’s novelists around the world. Inaugural winner Lucy Van Smit was swiftly signed by literary agent Sallyanne Sweeney, Jane Brittan attracted a Carnegie Medal nomination for her indie-published debut and shortlistee Sophie Cameron signed a book deal with Macmillan Children’s after accepting representation with literary agent Hellie Ogden for her YA novel Out of the Blue.

Entry for the award ends November 19th, 2017 (and remember, this is UK time zone)! Submissions are OPEN and invited for middle grade and young adult novels in all genres. For complete guidelines and entry fee information, go here. As always, good luck!
