Writing Award

Welcome To Our Writing Award

Launch your writing career by entering your completed and unpublished manuscript
for our prestigious panel of literary agents and publishers to judge the winners!

The Page Turner Awards, sponsored by ProWritingAid, will publish one writer and possibly many more!
This means that at least one writer is guaranteed to be published!
And possibly more will be published via the many literary agents and publishers on our judging panel.
Tell us what you think about our awards.
