2cd8ed9b-23ca-4a14-b0b8-d9e49e1b6684

 

Applications are open for Moniack Mhor's award for unpublished writers, worth £2,000

Now in its third year, the 2018 Emerging Writer Award (formerly The Bridge Award) is aimed at unpublished prose fiction writers hoping to make a significant breakthrough in developing a full-length piece of work.

The successful candidate will receive a tailored package, worth £2,000, including tuition via open courses, retreat time and mentoring.

Writers applying for the Emerging Writer Award should live and work in the UK and must not previously have published a full-length novel or a collection of short stories. To apply, send a synopsis/summary of the writing project (single side of A4) and a writing sample up to 1,000 words. The writer's name must not appear on the sample and synopsis. Also include a CV with information about how you meet the eligibility criteria, something about yourself and full contact details.

Applications for the Emerging Writer Award are open until 8 January.
