Calling all Food, Cooking and Baking Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the food, cooking and baking 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.
Cooks and food lovers’ community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have an inspiring cookbook, 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.
Whether you have a traditional cookbook of mouth-watering recipes, like Jamie Oliver, or an unconventional fictional tale of culinary excellence, like Disney’s Ratatouille, our judges would love to read it.
Perhaps you have written the next big screen story exploring different cooking experiences. Think Julie & Julia, which follows famous chef and cookbook writer Julia Child from the perspective of a modern-day food blogger.
Or maybe it’s one ingredient that’s really tantalising your tastebuds… chocolate. This has certainly inspired some very famous stories. Think of children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, or the classic film Chocolat.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 food, cooking and baking community, with their love for all things culinary, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
