Aspiring, unpublished novelists out there may be interested to learn that my publisher, Legend Press, today announced the 2009 Luke Bitmead Writer’s Bursary:
“Only adult fiction is eligble for this bursary, no children’s books or non-fiction. The judging panel will consist of Luke’s mother and sister, Legend Press and also two best-selling authors; top Swiss fiction writer Zoe Jenny and UK novelist Sam Mills. Entrants must be aged 16 or over. There is no upper age restriction for entry but all submissions must be from first-time, non-published authors – particularly those who are talented but whose personal or financial circumstances are making it especially hard for them to focus on writing as a career.”
Hope this is useful.
