Five finalists will receive an invitation to a special networking event with literary agents.

Entry fee: £25 per novel

To enter, please submit the first 3,000 words of your completed children’s novel. To qualify, your book must total at least 15,000 words.

Judges: Anne Fine (award-winning novelist), Claire Wilson (literary agent), Charlotte Eyre (Children’s Editor, Bookseller)

‘I’ve found that there’s a huge amount of respect out there for Mslexia, and being a Mslexia competition winner really means something.’
