Sunday Times/Peters Fraser & Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award seanocarolan.com #Writing #contest #competition




The 2016 Sunday Times/ Peters Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year award is open for entry until 1 May 2016.

Poet Sarah Howe received the 2015 Young Writer of the Year Award for her debut collection Loop of Jade (Chatto & Windus):

For my book even to register alongside novels and stories on a multi-genre shortlist was a surprise to me. It made me see my writing in a new way: that my poems might speak to a wider audience than I had thought possible.

The Young Writer Award casts its nets wide where form, genre, publisher or voice are concerned: I’d encourage anyone who’s eligible to put their work forward.

The award is given to a full-length work of outstanding literary merit by a British author aged 18-35 years. It is open to writers of any genre, whether published or self-published, poetry, fiction or non-fiction. Books published in a digital format are also eligible.

The result will be announced in December 2016. The winner of the award will receive £5,000, with three runners-up each receiving £500.

The Sunday Times/ Peters Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award is sponsored by the Sunday Times and the literary agency Peters Fraser + Dunlop and administered by the Society of Authors.
