Calling all Healthcare Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the healthcare 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.
Members of the healthcare community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a nonfiction book sharing your medical knowledge with the wider community, 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 devastating impact of the pandemic has affected healthcare professionals in so many ways. At Page Turner Awards, we want to celebrate those stories.
Have you seen communities pull together in ways you never imagined? Have you been inspired by positive stories of healing, like seeing families reunited after distance and illness has kept them apart?
Or maybe you’ve written a fascinating story exploring mental health. Think Girl, Interrupted or The Bell Jar.
Or perhaps your writing, fiction or non-fiction, offers critique on healthcare systems, like documentaries such as Sicko or The Waiting Room.
However you’ve found your inspiration, Page Turner Awards can’t wait to share your story.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 healthcare community, with their invaluable understanding of healthcare matters, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
