Calling all Parenting Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the parenting 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.
Parents contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a memoir about your life raising kids, 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.
We can’t wait to see new feel-good and family-friendly stories entered for our awards. Perhaps they’ll go on to see the same success as titles like Look Who’s Talking.
Or perhaps your mind has been inspired by stories of children’s mischief and meddling, such as The Parent Trap, or Matilda.
Maybe you have a heart-warming tale exploring the importance of family relationships, like Nicholas Sparks’ The Last Song or the classic Mrs Doubtfire.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 parenting community, with their unique experience of life as a mum or dad, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
