Page Turner Awards is inviting creative writers and budding authors in Berkshire to join their community of writers and get involved in the Page Turner Awards 2021.

The creative writing community, with its variety of unique life experiences, has some excellent and fascinating stories and advice to share. Page Turner Awards would love to see these cultural stories, memoirs, true-life stories, and non-fiction books with diverse themes.

The Page Turner Awards literary and film producer judges are hunting for fictional dramas, memories, and true-life stories. Yours, possibly collecting dust in a drawer or within your computer chips, may see the light of day.

The Page Turner Awards is an inclusive writing and book awards with one goal - to change the lives of as many writers as possible. Page Turner Awards passionately believes that talented writers can be from any background, age, race, religion, or interest.

The creative writing community contains talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a memoir, a gasp-inducing thriller, or the next-big-thing comedy screenplay, Page Turner Awards can’t wait to pass your story to their panel of influential literary judges and publishers.

If you've already written a manuscript or published a book and would like to reach a wider audience, you may want to enter for the possibility of winning a publishing deal or an audiobook production.

Success stories include three writers winning literary representation, six writers winning a writing mentorship, five writers winning a publishing contract and thirteen independent authors winning an audiobook production.

The Page Turner Awards, sponsored by ProWritingAid, gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 help 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."

During the pandemic, writers have been spending more time creating the stories they always dreamed they would tell. Page Turner Awards, based in Newbury, in Berkshire, ran a survey of their writers and surprise findings showed that 61 per cent of writers are able to write more since the pandemic started.

The awards run annually between January and May. Submissions for the 2021 awards close May 31.
