Calling All Police Force Writers

Calling All Police Force Writers to enter Page Turner Awards writing contest

Calling all Police Force Writers!

Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the Police 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 Police Force writing community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a memoir, 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.

Police work is undoubtably hard-hitting. Maybe you’ve been inspired by popular TV dramas like Line of Duty or The Wire and have your own story like this to share.

Or perhaps, at times, you’ve seen the funnier side of the job. The success of films like Hot Fuzz and Cop Out prove that there is a worldwide audience engaging with these comedy stories.

If non-fiction is more your thing, maybe you have a memoir about your time in the police force, or what challenges are facing police workers right now. Think On the Line by Alice Vinten.

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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 Police Force writing community, with their life of unusual experiences and adventure, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.

Submissions close on the 31st of May.
