We are delighted to relaunch The Golden Egg Award open to writers from backgrounds under-represented in children’s publishing. We are keen to hear from unagented, unpublished children’s fiction writers in the UK, who may identify as Black, Asian or from a minority ethnic group, LGBTQ+, disabled or other groups not traditionally represented in the industry.
We are offering two places on our popular Write Your Successful Children’s Novel course from February 2021.
To apply, please send the following to [email protected] by the 31st of January 2021, with the subject line THE GOLDEN EGG AWARD:
- The opening one (1) thousand words of your novel.
- A short synopsis of your novel or a paragraph with the overarching goal of your main character (max. 250 words).
- A short paragraph telling us about why you’ve applied for a place and what’s inspired you to write for children (max. 250 words).
