Writers based in the North of England are invited to submit their work-in-progress to the Northern Writers’ Awards 2019.
The Northern Writers’ Awards are for work-in-progress and exist to recognise talent and support new work towards publication or broadcast. The awards are the largest of their kind in the UK and have a reputation for identifying some of the best unpublished writing in the country. There are awards for writers of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and television at different stages of their careers, including young people. Awards can include publication; mentoring; developmental support; and cash awards to buy time to write.
There are categories across novel writing, short story, poetry, non-fiction and scriptwriting.
For scriptwriters the categories include the Channel 4 Writing for Television Awards, with a mentoring placement on Hollyoaks, produced by Lime Pictures and the Television Drama Award with a mentoring placement at Bonafide Films.
