Calling all Wedding Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the wedding 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.
People planning a wedding/the soon-to-be married community contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a guide to creating the wedding of your dreams, 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.
For many, weddings are a hugely significant event in one’s life, and so the stories created about this day will be told for years to come.
But what if it all goes wrong? Comedies featuring weddings are often hugely successful.
Maybe you’re dreading your partner’s Stag/Hen night? Think The Hangover. Or perhaps it’s a mismatched bridal party feud that will get your audience laughing, think Bridesmaids.
If you’re a wedding organizer, perhaps you’ve witnessed a last-minute confession of love or seen these events bring couples together. Classics like The Wedding Singer or Four Weddings and a Funeral have been inspired by this idea. And of course, there's inspiration for new stories from Jennifer and Matthew in The Wedding Planner.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 weddings community, with all their know-how about wedding planning, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions for 2021 close on the 31st of May.
