Novel writing competition: QuoScript


13 November 2020
The competition to win a publishing contract is open exclusively to Writing Magazine readers from now to the beginning of December

QuoScript is running an adult crime fiction and YA fiction novel writing competition. The winning entry will be selected by QuoScript and offered a publishing contract provided that at least one entry is of the required standard. Two runners-up will be offered advice and support on how to making their writing more publishable. This will take the form of a telephone ‘author surgery’ call.

The competition is open to published and unpublished authors.

To enter, submit the first chapter, a synopsis and a covering letter including author information.

State clearly whether your novel is adult crime fiction or YA, and include ‘Writing Competition’ in the subject line of the email to [email protected].

Entry is free.

Content continues after advertisements

The closing date is 28 February.
