UK’s “Next Big Thing” Writing Competition
Entrants must be previously unpublished UK residents. The prize will include a £5,000 advance and a publishing contract with Bloomsbury.
Said Jonathan Douglas of the National Literary Trust, “we work to bring reading for enjoyment and a love of books to children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the UK. Exciting, engaging and inspiring children’s literature is vital to our work, which is why we have launched this competition with Bloomsbury Publishing to help find the next ‘big thing’ in children’s storytelling.”
