Calling all Jewish Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the Jewish 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 team at Page Turner Awards passionately believes that talented writers can be from any background, age, race, religion, or interest.
The Jewish community contains talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a memoir about Jewish family 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.
Jewish history and experiences have inspired many well-loved books and films. Think Fiddler on the Roof, Schindler’s List, or The Diary of Anne Frank.
Maybe you’ve been inspired by one of Netflix’s most recent hit shows Unorthodox, which received eight Primetime Emmy Award nominations. The mini-series follows the story of a young girl who runs away from her Jewish Orthodox community in New York.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing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 Jewish community, with their life experiences shaped by their Jewish culture, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
