Event Details

The Cheshire Novel Prize is a worldwide writing competition for un-agented authors of adult fiction, memoir and fictional memoir.

With a top prize of £1,500, there is clearly a lot of appeal. But it is the prestige of winning the award that could really kickstart your career as a novelist.

The prize is now nearly three years old and over the last two years, twelve  shortlisted writers have received offers of representation as a direct result of entering the prize. Many other listed writers have received interest in their work—and representation in some cases. Other writers have used feedback from the event to successfully become published with independent presses or smaller publishing houses.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
