Calling all Women’s Interests Writers!
Page Turner Awards is inviting aspiring writers and budding authors in the women’s interests’ 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.
Women contain talented writers and undiscovered literary gems. Whether you have a modern guide to feminism, 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.
Not 100% sure what kind of things to include here as this offers such a wide scope. – Could add something like women’s health and fitness, or women in business?
If you’ve found yourself inspired by the true stories of figures like Erin Brockovich or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there’s no doubt you’ll have some great ideas for compelling stories with women’s issues and interests at its heart.
Or, if comedy is more your thing, you might have written a light-hearted future household favourite where female characters shine through and overcome challenges, like Legally Blonde or Mulan.
Perhaps you have some non-fiction research concerning women’s issues that you’d like to share. Think Invisible Women, where Caroline Criado Perez offers an eye-opening perspective on unseen gender biases, or Feminists Don’t Wear Pink, an essay collection curated by Scarlett Curtis.
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The Page Turner Awards gives writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction and screenplays to be read by a carefully curated judging panel made up of influential players in the publishing industry.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 women’s interests’ community, with their unique life experiences, will have some excellent and fascinating stories to share.
Submissions close on the 31st of May.
