Fiction Uncovered has secured National Lottery funding from Arts Council England for the next two years to enable The Literary Platform to run the promotion of an award that has been called 'The Mercury Prize for British fiction writers.'
Sophie Rochester, CEO of The Literary Platform, said: 'We're delighted that Fiction Uncovered will run again in 2014 and 2015, and to be able to bring this project under The Literary Platform umbrella. The promotion has great momentum and with our developing network of partnerships we look forward to growing it nationally and internationally.'
Eight books will be chosen to be part of Fiction Uncovered 2014, which will include celebration through the website, an annual retail promotion, author events and a pop-up radio station.
All kinds of fiction, including short story collections and graphic novels, can be submitted to Fiction Uncovered, but debut novels are not eligible.
Publishers may submit two works of fiction per imprint.
Self-published writers may submit on their own behalf.
Publishers and self-publishers must submit six copies of each title with an entry form by the closing date of 3 February.
