Newbury writers encouraged to enter Page Turner Awards 2021

WRITERS are being encouraged to get involved in the Page Turner Awards 2021 to be in with the chance of having their film scripts optioned.

Page Turner Awards is inviting Newbury writers to join their community of writers and get involved in the competition.

The Page Turner Awards is an inclusive writing and book awards with one goal – to change the lives of as many writers as possible.

Organisers said there are talented undiscovered writers in Newbury with undiscovered literary gems.

Whether you have a non-fiction 'how to' guide, a tear-jerking memoir, a scandalous family drama, or the next-big-thing comedy, Page Turner Awards wants to pass your story to their panel of influential literary judges, publishers and film producers.

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, audiobook production or film rights option.

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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, to be read by a judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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

Submissions for 2021 are now open.
