WriteMentor runs two different novel awards for writers of children’s fiction.

There is the main award, which opens for entries from December to January 31st. This is for completed manuscripts, and has a separate PB and novel award, judged by separate agent judges.

There is also our Novel-In-Development award, which is based solely on the first 2.5k of your novel (or full PB text), plus synopsis. This award provides feedback for every entry, from both adults and children readers.

Entry for novels is usually £10, with PBs at £5.

More details on the current iteration of each award are below.
