Stuart Wakefield is judging the Page Turner Writing Award in 2023 to find narrative driven stories with characters that jump off the page.
With 26 years in theatre, broadcast media, and coaching under his belt, Stuart has a visceral understanding of what makes stories work, and he loves to share that with others because the world of storytelling is like the ocean: deep, mysterious, and a little scary to those who don't know how to navigate it.
With so much left to luck and timing, it's his life's mission to give great books the best chance of getting into readers' hands.
In the submissions, I'm looking for narrative drive and characters that jump off the page.
He's an Author Accelerator Certified book coach and was recognized as one of the top book coaches by Coach Foundation
