remember that novel you wrote?

~ the text prize ~

time to dust it off and polish it up, because submissions will soon be open for the annual text prize for young adult and children's writing!

never been published before? fabulous! you can enter.
published so many times it's getting a bit passé? that's fine too!

make sure you get your entry in between the dates may 2nd and june 3rd. it costs a little bit to enter, but the prize is well worth it.

just ask richard newsome, leanne hall and jane higgins...

check out all the details here.


  1. I do wish they'd limit the competition to writers who have never published a novel before. That way they'd show a real interest in nurturing NEW talent.

  2. Ooh, thank you for posting about this, Kate! How exciting!

    I hope I can have my entry ready in time...

  3. i don't know why they don't limit it, robyn, but i think it could be a really great opportunity for authors who want to take their work in a new direction, possibly?

    good luck hermina! get a-polishing!


hey anonymousauruses - give yourselves a name. a nom de plume, a nom de blog. it's more fun that way.
