Win a publishing contract with HarperFiction!
The Comedy Women in Print Prize is joining forces with HarperFiction to offer a £5,000 publishing contract as the prize for an unpublished author
The runner-up prize is a free MA course in creative writing from the University of Hertfordshire.
The Comedy Women in Print prize was launched by comedian and writer Helen Lederer in response to lack of support for comedy writing by women and to discover and encourage new talent.
‘When HarperFiction came through with this unique and serious offer to publish new work…Well, I had to sit down,’ said Helen. ‘It proves that witty female fiction is being taken seriously from the top down. I love HarperFiction for doing this. They will not be sorry…and they will definitely laugh more.’
To submit, unpublished women writers should send the first 5,000 words of a novel and a one-page synopsis.
The closing date is 28 February.
