Ever thought about writing commercial fiction? A free competition for unpublished writers of colour


THIS IS EXCITING – a potentially life-changing competition exclusively for un-agented, unpublished writers of colour. The winner will receive a two-book publishing contract from Avon with an advance against royalties of £10,000 (£5,000 per book), an additional £3,000 grant to support their writing, and representation fromMushens Entertainment.

Your novel doesn’t have to be complete.
Work in Progress is absolutely fine as long as you can submit the first three chapters or 50 pages of your unpublished novel (up to 10,000 words) during the submissions window which runs between 11thJanuary-28thFebruary 2021.

In fact the organisers – who are part of the giant HarperCollins publishing house – say:

...the competition is intended not only for writers with finished manuscripts but those who might not have previously considered commercial fiction.
