Event Details

The Mslexia Fiction & Memoir Competition 2020 is now open for entries. There are four categories – memoir & life writing, short story, flash fiction, and children’s & young adult novel – so we hope there’s at least one category that matches your kind of writing.

Please submit the first 5,000 words of completed novels of at least 20,000 words in length, for children and/or young adult readers. This prize has been created specifically to promote the work of women who are (as yet) unpublished as novelists.

Judges: Kiran Millwood Hargrave, novelist; Amanda Craig, novelist and children’s fiction critic; Joanna Moult, literary agent

Additional prizes: Three finalists will be invited to a pitching workshop followed by a networking event with agents and editors, and will receive manuscript feedback from The Literary Consultancy.
