Last call for North East Novelists

If you're planning to enter this year's North East New Novelist contest you now have just a week to submit your manuscript.

Backed by the National Lottery and the Arts Council, the competition will see two local writers have their novels published, and give the winners the chance to work with bestselling local authors to develop their books before they hit the shops. The winning novels will be chosen by bestselling authors Kitty Fitzgerald (Pigtopia) and Wendy Robertson (Family Ties). Kitty and Wendy will then mentor the winning writers. Both chosen novels will be published by Tonto Books in January 2009.

The competition is open to writers currently residing in the North East of England who have not previously had a novel published. Entry is free, and full details can be found here.

The final date for receipt of submissions is Monday 31 March 2008.
