Calling all Beauty Writers
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the beauty lovers’ community to join their community of writers and get involved in the Page Turner Awards 2021.
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 Beauty lovers’ community contains talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a guide to the best hair and make-up techniques, 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.
Share your back-to-basics skincare guide to help those struggling with their skin, just like Caroline Hirons’ Skincare - The Ultimate No-Nonsense Guide or Beyond Soap by Christopher Shulgan and Sandy Skotnicki
Maybe you’ve had an experience with cosmetic surgery that you’d like to share, from the perspective of the patient or the doctor. Think - The Tweakments Guide by Alice Hart-Davis.
Or perhaps you’ve gone beyond the surface level, what is only skin-deep, and you’re wanting to start conversations and critiques about the industry. Think Palette: The Beauty Bible for Women of Color by Funmi Fetto, which explores inclusivity and beauty standards for women of colour, as well as discussing beauty products on a practical level.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 beauty community, with their beauty knowledge and talent, also have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
