The Caledonia Novel Award

Event Details

This international competition from Edinburgh is open to unpublished and self-published debut novelists. It is for stories of at least 50,000 words in any adult or young adult genre. To enter, you email the first 20 pages of your novel (lines to be double-spaced) followed by a 200 word synopsis. If longlisted you will be expected to submit the full manuscript by 6.12.20. The judge is Laura Williams, literary agent at Greene & Heaton Ltd.

There is in addition a special prize for the best entry from the British Isles and Ireland, comprising a place on a writing course at Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre.  This is in the Scottish Highlands, possibly 14 miles from the nearest pub.  There will be no trains and quite likely no road.  You will therefore complete your journey on a donkey, accompanied by native guides and sherpas.
