The 2016 Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition
Are you a writer with an original and exciting story for 7-to-18-year-olds? If so, we’d love you to enter our competition, and you have until Friday 18th December 2015 to submit. Every entry will be read by our team of experienced readers in order to draw up a longlist of the very best submissions. Barry Cunningham and the Chicken House editorial team will then narrow these down to a shortlist of five.
Our prestigious panel of judges will then pore over the shortlist to choose the winner, to be announced in spring 2016. The prize will be a worldwide publishing deal with Chicken House, with an advance of £10,000 (subject to contract).
What Chicken House are looking for
Original ideas, a fresh voice and a story that children will love! To enter, you must have written a completed full-length novel suitable for children/young adults aged somewhere between 7 and 18 years. By full-length we suggest a minimum of 30,000 words and ask that manuscripts entered do not exceed 80,000 words in length.
What you can win
First prize is a worldwide publishing contract with Chicken House with a royalty advance of £10,000, plus representation from a top children’s literary agent.* All longlisted entrants will receive a reader’s report of their work.
