One for the realists perhaps: Salt Modern Dreams - Deadline: Thu 1 May 2014

Independent publisher Salt is to launch a digital-only series of novellas following the lives of young people in inner-city Britain
Can you write scintillating urban prose that’s capable of reaching a mass-market? Tell stories that matter about issues that are compelling, relevant and politically hot? Write about characters we care about in enthralling, thrilling and perhaps terrifying situations? Do you want to be part of one of the UK’s leading independent presses?

Your novella must deal with 18 to 24 year olds living in contemporary inner-city Britain. We want issue-led works that tell the truth about what life is like for the young in these islands. Crime, drugs, fun, hope, immigration, integration, joblessness, laughs, love, loss, loyalty, music, sex, surviving and tragedy in modern Britain. We want to hear the stories that will make us sit up and stare in wonder. Lie awake at night. The stories that will break our hearts. Make us laugh out loud. Make us cry. The stories that tell the truth.
