Calling All Gardening Writers

Calling All Gardening Writers to enter Page Turner Awards writing contest

Calling all Gardening, Flowers and Herbs Writers!

Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the gardeners’ 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.

Gardeners’ community contains talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a book about caring for tropical orchids, 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.

When you sit in your garden, coffee in hand, and think about the memories made there, the seasons it has been witness to, and the growth and rejuvenation you see over time, it’s fascinating to think about how, in many ways, our gardens hold stories within themselves.

Perhaps your garden has been the inspiration for a children’s coming-of-age story, like The Secret Garden, or children’s comedy like Gnomeo & Juliet.

Or maybe you’re more inspired by the romance of stories like A Little Chaos, in settings like Versailles.

If you feel you have valuable skills to share with the community, maybe you’ve considered writing a gardening guide. Think The Complete Gardener by Monty Don.

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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 gardening community, with their love for all things horticultural, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.

Submissions close on the 31st of May.
