Calling All Hobbyist Writers

Calling All Hobbyist Writers to enter Page Turner Awards writing contest

Calling all Collecting & Crafts Writers!

Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the collecting and crafts 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 crafting community/passionate collectors
community contains talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a nonfiction book about collectables / a “how to” craft book, 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.

Recent lockdowns have given many people an opportunity to take on new hobbies. Perhaps you can share a practical guide on a skilled craft, such as crochet or embroidery. Think How to Crochet: A Complete Guide for Absolute Beginners by Alison McNicol.

Another lockdown craze has seen more people sprucing up their homes by collecting and caring for indoor plants. Many believe that this can have a hugely positive impact on mental health, as discussed in My House Plant Changed My Life by David Domoney. Have you found solace and peace in something like this?

Or maybe you’ve tried to bring date night to your kitchen and had a go at some pottery making! We all know THAT iconic scene from Ghost…

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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing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

Submissions close on the 31st of May.
