Page Turner Awards is inviting young aspiring writers and budding authors in the students’ and teen community to join their community of writers and get involved in the Page Turner Awards 2021 writing contest for young writers.
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.
The Page Turner Awards five award categories consist of a Writing Award, Young Writer Award, Writing Mentorship Award, Book Award and Screenplay Award.
Students contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a guide to making the most out of your first year at university, a scandalous student drama, a fantasy story with a heroic young character who faces magical challenges (think Harry Potter) or the next-big-thing teen comedy (think Big), Page Turner Awards can’t wait to pass your story to their panel of influential literary agents, publishers and film producers.
Perhaps you have the next big dystopian bubbling away in your head (think Hunger Games), or a series of coming-of-age challenges (think The Princess Diaries). Teens who have been through a devastating rebellion may be thinking of writing the next Lady Bird. Whatever you have in mind for your story, Page Turner Awards wants your stories.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 students’ community, with their wealth of knowledge to share about student life, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
