Calling All Artistic Writers

Calling All Artistic Writers to enter Page Turner Awards writing contest

Calling all Artistic Writers!

Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the arts community to join their community of writers and get involved in the Page Turner Awards.

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

The members of the arts community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a non-fiction book about an artist you are passionate about, a gasp-inducing thriller, or the next-big-thing comedy, Page Turner Awards can’t wait to pass your story to their panel of influential literary agents, publishers and film producers.

Perhaps you’ve been working on a cinematic biography to tell the story of fascinating and revolutionary artists, like Frida?

Or maybe you’ve found yourself inspired by historical dramas and societal themes of the time, like power, money, and sex? Think Girl With a Pearl Earring. This hugely successful film was adapted from a book, and our Screenplay Award judges are so excited to read stories that still need adaptation.

Exploring the stories surrounding these familiar and famous faces offers huge scope for creativity. Perhaps you have a fiction or non-fiction backstory to an artist, like Loving Vincent.

The inaugural Page Turner Awards was a huge success 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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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, publishing packages and film rights options.

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 arts community, with their love for the arts world, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.

Submissions open every year in January and close in June of the same year.
