Calling all Grandparents Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the grandparents’ 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.
Grandparents contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have an autobiography or memoir about your life, 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.
The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is an incredibly special one, so there’s no surprise that these relationships have inspired some great stories.
From the classic Charlie and The Chocolate Factory to series like The Princess Diaries, it’s clear that the heartwarming stories of grandparents and grandchild relationships are captivating to a wide audience and can become household favourites.
Or maybe you have a comedy you’d like to share which paints this relationship in a humorous light? Think Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.
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 thirteen 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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 helps writers and authors to get their stories discovered.”
There is no doubt that members of the grandparents’ community, with their wealth of wisdom and experience, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
