2013 Young Writers Prize

Attention 2013 Young Writers Prize entrants!

In two weeks time, on 28th October, we will be contacting the long listed writers. We hope that you’ve spent your summer expanding your first 4,000 words into a full length novel. (Don’t tell us you’ve spent all summer at the beach, because then you should get work right now!) If you are on the list, you only have two weeks left, until the 11th of November, to finish your book!

While we’ve been busy reading all the submissions, we’ve also gathered some information about all the entries. We know you love stats, so we’ve combined them in this handy infographic.

Best of luck to everyone who is still furiously writing and we can’t wait to announce our first round of finalists!

Curious about last year’s winners? Find out more about them in this recent blog post.
