Calling all Retirement and Senior Citizens Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the retirement and senior citizens 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.
Senior citizens community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a self-help guide explaining how to make the most of your retirement, 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.
Perhaps you have a heart-warming story to share about the interlinked lives and experiences of interesting people, like we see in the fantastic and hugely successful The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Or maybe you have a comedy you’d like to share? Think Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.
Or, if you have a story for younger audiences, you might have been inspired by stories like Disney’s Up, and written your own story about pursuing a loved one’s dreams.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 senior citizens community, with their unique life experiences, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
