Super excited to have made the longlist for the Writing Mentorship Award. Thanks so much to the organisers and judges, I'm beyond happy!

We all appreciate this opportunity so much and all the hard work The Page Turner team have put into running this.

Congrats to all who join me in your various categories - wishing you all the best of luck for the next round of judging!

Congratulations to my fellow Longlisters!! I'm incredibly honoured and chuffed and rooting for all of you!

However, I get "Access Denied" when I click on the link for my badge?

Congratulations to everyone who made it through this second round, and thank you Page Turner Awards for making this possible. I was so thrilled to make the Longlist that I did a little dance!

Best of luck to all in your writing journey.

Excited to feature on the longlist for the Writing Mentorship Award!

Congratulations to all, not only fellow longlist candidates but also everyone who submitted - getting your work into contests like this is a huge step!

Congratulations to everyone on the Longlists!

I am so honoured to be on the longlist for the Writing Award - when I got the email I screamed, and I’m still feeling a little giddy.

Wishing the best of luck to everyone.

Enjoy this day, and the years ahead as your writing career continues to develop.

I've enjoyed being a finalist twice -- '21 and '22 -- and plan to keep entering these contests. I signed a contract in August for my debut novel, "Rise on Eagle's Wings," and hope to enter the Book Award contest next year. Perhaps the following year I'll have a new manuscript to enter into the Writing Award contest.

It's a pleasure to enter contests with such a wide variety of talented and persistent authors and writers.

Blessings to You All!

Congratulations! This is huge, people! I am so honored to be part of this talented group. Thank you so much to the Page Turner Awards for this opportunity, and for deeming my manuscript worthy. I can still hardly believe it. This definitely calls for a celebration. Cheers, everyone!

Thanks for believing in my story, The Islander. And congratulations to everyone who made the next stage of the final 50 wonderful storytellers. It is quite an accomplishment!

Best to all of you!


Raymond Paul Johnson Wed, 07/09/2022 - 23:06

To 2022 Longlisters--Well Done! And Best of Luck with the next phase.

To Paula and Ken Sheridan and the Page Turner Team--Thanks for making this possible for all of us, but fyi...like others I've been unable to access the Longlister Badges through the published link. Probably needs a tweak.

Thanks, Ray

Congratulations everyone. What an honour!

Thank you Paula and Ken for making this possible.

Best of luck for the next round!

Very chuffed to have made it through to the longlist. Congratulations to everyone who made it through. Good luck for the next round :)

Although I have yet to receive an e-mail regarding the Longlist, I saw this thread and followed the link to the page where, Lo and Behold, I saw myself on the Writing Award listing. To say I was chuffed to be considered within the last 52 standing (or sitting!) would be a massive understatement, but it was a feeling understandably tinged with heartfelt sadness at the announcement of the passing of our great monarch. During my time in Her Majesty's Forces, I took great pride in being able to serve her and feel that same deep sense of loss that many are feeling.

Well done to everyone who has been selected to form the Longlist and the very best of luck for the next phase...and thanks (again) to all at the Page Turner Award for facilitating such a fine competition.

DLHammons Mon, 12/09/2022 - 17:28

I'm beyond thrilled to receive the news that my first novel "Knight Rise" has been selected to be included in this year's Longlist and I want to extend a heartfelt 'fist bump' to my fellow Longlisters. Exciting times indeed!

Congrats all!

Meredith Wargo Mon, 12/09/2022 - 19:04

Heartfelt congratulations to those who made the longlists! I'm honored to be included among many talented writers. And many thanks to everybody who has dedicated their time to making the Page Turner Awards such a prestigious contest. Best wishes for continued success to all!

I am thrilled to have made the Book Award Longlist! It’s an honor to be recognized amid the deep pool of talent. Good luck to everyone going forward!

It was brilliant to discover earlier today that Nile Cat is on the Book Award Longlist! Congratulations to all my fellow Longlisters - it's a privilege to be one of you!!

ATLDWordHaven Wed, 14/09/2022 - 15:06

I am thrilled to be counted among those who were longlisted and wish to extend my most heartfelt congratulations. To be recognized along with such talent is truly humbling.

MJPatrick Wed, 14/09/2022 - 15:36

As Jane Austen might say, I am excessively pleased to be Longlisted in the Writer Award for my as-yet-unpublished Victorian "blue collar romance" THE CORSET GIRL! Sincere thanks to Page Turner Awards - you have made my year. And warm congratulations to all my fellow awardees. Forget the A List, we are on the Longlist! Annie R. McEwen

Harriet Garfinkle Wed, 14/09/2022 - 16:01

Thank you to all the judges for your incredible hard work and thanks to the organisers for keeping us all up-to-date and informed. Best of luck to everyone for the short lists.

Congratulations to all the talented writers who have made the longlists. I've read many of the entries and have enjoyed the range of intriguing voices and fascinating story introductions on display. The Page Turner Awards has surely reached new highs this year! Good luck to everyone going forward.

Susan Almond Wed, 14/09/2022 - 22:00

Huge congrats to all who made it onto the longlist - the entries all seem great to me - and tremendous thanks to all responsible for organising the Page Turner Awards. To me this seems to be one of the best competitions in terms of communication and encouragement which is what we all need.

Even though I'm pretty sure this will be as far as I go in the competition, it means a lot that people have twice now thought my book had something worthy in it, and I'm really grateful to the judges for their consideration. It's given me a real boost. Think I might even pick up my half-completed second book now and try to finish it!

VictoriaGemmell Wed, 14/09/2022 - 22:17

Hi all, Isn’t it lovely to receive positive writing news! Congrats to everyone and best of luck in the next round x

mikaelcarlson Thu, 15/09/2022 - 21:58

...to be in such great company with my fellow Longlisters! Writing is a passion, and the creativity poured onto pages results in storytelling that captivates our readers. Everyone who writes deserves congratulations for their efforts.

Dru Bhattacharya Fri, 16/09/2022 - 16:11
