Women's Prize Trust Novel Discoveries Prize

Event Details

Discoveries invites all unpublished women writers over 18 and living in the UK or Ireland and writing in English to submit to the Discoveries Prize. The prize doesn’t require writers to have finished a novel – only to have started one – and it is free to enter.

It is open to any genre of adult fiction and you only need to submit the first 10,000 words of your novel plus a synopsis (and you’re allowed a very generous 1000 words ). You may find this article on synopsis writing useful.

The Discoveries writing development programme was set up in honour of the 25th anniversary of the Women’s Prize for Fiction – and builds on the principles of regionality, inclusivity and accessibility.
