Tonto New Novelists 2008 launches today

Are you writer based in the North East of England? Could YOU be a Tonto Books' North East New Novelist 2008? Pens at the ready - we have TWO publishing contracts up for grabs! As part of Tonto Books' new fiction project, we are today launching our North East New Novelists contest. Two lucky writers will win publishing contracts and see their novels published by Tonto Books in January 2009. The contest will be judged by bestselling novelists Kitty Fitzgerald (Pigtopia) and Wendy Robertson (Family Ties). Uniquely, the two winning novelists will be mentored by Kitty and Wendy as their novel is developed for publication.

The Tonto Books Fiction 2008 Project is supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England. Due to the nature of this project's funding, the contest is only open to writers in the North East of England. Writers outside of this region are advised to watch our website and newsletter for news of future national and international projects for which they might be eligible. The closing date for submissions is Monday 31 March 2008. Please see full submission details on our website.
