Calling all Childcare Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the childcare 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.
Those who care for children contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a book of advice and tips for new parents, 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.
Reflecting on your experience working with children, there may have been times where you wished you had magic powers, like Mary Poppins or Nanny McPhee. Perhaps that has inspired you to create a fictional story with such heart-warming characters as these.
Or perhaps your own experience of dealing with bratty behaviour or difficult family relationships has inspired a rom-com story like The Nanny Diaries.
Have you ever felt out of your depth and overwhelmed with the challenges of childcare? Childcare can certainly be both challenging and rewarding, as Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe learns in The Pacifier.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 childcare community, with their experience of the amazing highs and lows of childcare, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
