We are proud to support The Next Big Author – a new initiative that aims to support new talent with their literary success and to encourage budding authors to write the opening to a novel.
Aspiring authors are invited to submit their completed opening chapters by the end of May to Arts Council funded YouWriteOn. The community will review and rate the submissions during June, with the five highest rated ones receiving a free professional critique by participating publishers, including Little,Brown.
