Woman magazine and award-winning publishers Accent Press have launched a competition to find a new star of contemporary women’s fiction. The prize? A contract with Accent Press to publish your novel next autumn and a week-long writing holiday at Chez Castillon, an 18th century townhouse and writer’s retreat in the Bordeaux region of France. Woman magazine will also feature the winner and their book.
The competition is open to new, previously unpublished writers. To enter, you must submit a synopsis and the first three chapters of your original work before midnight on November 30 2014.
The judging panel includes Katie Fforde – one of the most popular names in womens’ fiction, Cat Camacho – women’s fiction editor at Accent Press Ltd and Jane Wenham-Jones – best-selling women’s fiction writer and author of the writing book series Wannabe A Writer.
