The Spotlight Books Competition is open until 24 February 2019.
It’s a joint initiative between Creative Future, Myriad Editions and New Writing South.
Only open to UK writers from under-represented backgrounds—those who face barriers due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance. (Full definitions are in their guidelines).
Free to enter.
Submit fiction, from 8,000 to 10,000 words. Submit poetry 40-50 lines.
Six writers will be selected and given one-to-one editorial support to shape their manuscript. The six writers will be published in individual small books with international distribution
