Calling all Scientists Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the scientists’ 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.
Scientists contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a nonfiction introduction to science for lay people, 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.
Maybe your heart has resonated with characters like Auggie in Wonder, whose obsession with space and astronauts means so much to him.
If space exploration is your thing, perhaps you’ve written a story like Passengers, where the lead characters are on a dangerous voyage through space, or perhaps you’re more inspired by the true stories behind space exploration, which we see brought to light in stories like Hidden Figures.
It seems that the true-life stories of geniuses like this are popular with audiences worldwide, as we also saw with the success of The Theory of Everything, based on Stephen Hawking’s life.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 scientists’ community, with their wealth of scientific knowledge, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
