Are you an unpublished female novelist or are you thinking of writing a children’s novel? Mslexia are now taking submissions for their 2016 Children’s Novel Competition.
This competition welcomes books written for children (who are able to read for themselves) as well as Young Adult and can be in any genre.
The first prize is £5,000 and five finalists will also receive an invitation to a special networking event with literary agents.
It is £25 per novel to enter and you’ll need to submit the first 3,000 words of your completed children’s novel (which needs to be at least 15,000 words to qualify.)
This year, the judges are award-winning novelist, Anne Fine, literary agent, Claire Wilson and Charlotte Eyre who is children’s editor for the Bookseller.
