The Impress Prize for New Writers 2016 #seanocarolan.com #Writing #Prize
The Impress Prize for New Writers 2016
This year’s prize is now open for entries. The deadline is 01/07/16.
The prize was created to discover and publish new writing talent. Entries to the prize are assessed by the Impress team each year and a shortlist produced from which a panel chooses the winner. The panel is comprised of representatives from the publishing industry and the writing community.
The winner of the prize is offered a publishing contract with Impress books with the aim of publishing the book in the year following the award. The Impress team also looks at all entries, whether on the shortlist or not, with a view to publication by Impress Books. Numerous entries from previous years have gone on to be published by Impress Books and other publishers and many authors who have entered the prize have also gone on to be represented by agents.
It is our firm belief that the prize is not just about the winner but should encourage emerging authors to write and to provide them with a focus and forum for their talent.
