If you’re a Rhiwbina writer, a Whitchurch weaver of stories, or a Llanishen librophile, you’re invited to get involved in the Page Turner Awards 2021.
The Page Turner Awards aims to change the lives of as many writers as possible, wherever they are in the world, and believes that talented writers can be from any background, age, race, religion, or interest.
The organisers say the inaugural awards ceremony, held online in October 2020, was a huge success — both on the night with writers winning high-value prizes, and in terms of how many lives it changed.
Success stories include three writers winning literary representation, six writers winning a writing mentorship, five writers winning a publishing contract and 13 independent authors winning an audiobook production.
The Page Turner Awards gives writers the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, to be read by a judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry. Prizes span everything from mentorships to audiobook production and publishing packages. Screenwriters may also get their film script optioned.
Founder of Page Turner Awards and award-winning novelist, Paula Wynne said:
“There are writers from all walks of life, from manual labourers to academics, all with stories to tell, and most of them heart-warming and moving. We’re proud that our awards celebrate excellent writing and helps writers and authors to get their stories discovered.
“There is no doubt that members of the creative writing community, with their unique life experiences and creative mindsets, also have some excellent and fascinating stories to share, and we would love to read them.”
