Calling all Travel and Tourism Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the Travel and Tourism 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.
Travel lovers contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a travellers’ guide to Borneo, 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.
Given the difficulties with travel restrictions over the past year or so, maybe you’ve felt inspired to write about your travel and tourism experiences?
Maybe you have a story of long-distance separation, like Nicholas Sparks’ Dear John, where a couple keep in touch through letters.
Or perhaps you’ve written about a previous trip you took and can reminisce on this fondly until we can all travel again. If your own experience was anywhere near as enriching as the classic Eat, Pray, Love, it’s got potential to become a much-loved story by many.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 travel and tourism community, with their passion for travel and adventure, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
