Win representation and £500 in the literary agent’s ‘Make Us Scared’ novel writing contest
Literary agency Madeleine Milburn is looking for an unpublished writer with a great voice, writing style and premise. Send novel manuscripts that relate to the ‘Make Us Scared’ theme, which may be anything from gritty crime stories to dark narratives.
The top five manuscripts will be shortlisted and receive comprehensive written feedback. The writer of the winning manuscript will receive £500 and an offer of agency representation.
To enter the Madeleine Milburn Summer Writing Competition, writers must be unagented and the work they submit must be unpublished.
Send a full manuscript or a minumum of 30,000 words if the novel is yet to be completed, a synopsis and a cover letter including a brief author biography.
The closing date is 1 September.
