Event Details

The Impress Prize was created by Impress Books to hunt for unpublished talent. After 13 years, we can safely say that there is a lot out there! We continue to champion and nurture new voices through our prize. Winners of past prizes have gone on to sell rights across the globe and some shortlisted authors have gone on to get multiple book deals with Impress Books.

The prize is open to all writers who have not been traditionally published before (this makes eligible self-published authors, or writers who have had other work published including short stories, poetry, and academic work).

Entries should comprise of a book proposal of no more than 1,000 words, a synopsis of no more than 1,000 words and a sample chapter of no more than 6,000 words.

We accept both fiction and non-fiction entries across all genres, but do not accept poetry.
