Calling all Veterinary Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the veterinary 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.
Veterinarians contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a veterinarian’s guide to caring for your pet, 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.
Do you ever wonder what the animals do when you’re not around? Stories like The Secret Life of Pets have certainly led to some funny thoughts!
Maybe you like to think of yourself as a magical healer, like Dr Dolittle. Or maybe you have a story to share about the times when, sadly, animals can’t be treated, and pet owners reflect on those moments they took for granted. Think Marley and Me.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 the veterinary community, with their love for taking care of animals, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
