Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency – Australian Writers’ Prize
March 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pmFree
UK Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is keen to find a great unpublished Australian writer who can amaze it with an incredible voice, writing and premise. The prize is open for adult fiction in all genres – the only thing they ask is that you are an unpublished Australian writer without representation.
The top three entries will be selected by the Madeleine Milburn agency for the shortlist. A winner will be chosen by Madeleine Milburn and they will receive an offer of representation by the agency. All three shortlisted entries will receive a comprehensive editorial report from the agency.
To enter, you must be un-agented and the work submitted must be unpublished (work from which an extract has been published in a literary magazine is fine). The prize is open to writers who are Australian, or are living in Australia and the work must be written in English.
HOW TO ENTER
Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency asks that you submit a pitch letter including a brief author bio with contact details, a one-page synopsis, and a full manuscript to be submitted (or a minimum of 30,000 words if the novel is nearing completion).
To find out what the agency is looking for and for more tips on your writing and submission, please see our team and news pages on its website
The closing date is 19th May 2017. The shortlist and winner will be announced on 1st August.
