Writers & Artists has launched a new prize for unpublished working class writers

The winner will receive editorial feedback from writer and competition judge Natasha Carthew, who is a passionate advocate of working class writing, and a place on a W&A How To Get Published event at Bloomsbury Publishing. The winner will also receive a book in the W&A Writing Companion series and a copy of the Writers' & Artists' Yearbook. Five shortlisted writers will receive W&A book prizes.

To be eligible, writers must be unagented and unpublished. To enter, submit a writing extract up to 2,000 words (ideally the beginning of a work in progress), a synopsis, and a 200-word description of your writing background and how you self-identify as a working class writer.

The closing date is 10 June.
