UoG 2016 Novel Writing Contest Deadline Extended!

1 Jul

Have you been soaking up the summer sun, and are having a hard time getting motivated to submit your opus?  Have you been watching the European Cup (dare we mention the Iceland game) and generally slacking off a bit?  Don’t worry: the UoG Novel Contest Judges have taken that into account, and we’ve decided to extend the deadline to the end of July: at midnight on the 31st.  So you have a few more weeks to get scribbling, and submit an extract (3,000 words) and punchy synopsis.  Our in-house judges will select the shortlisted entries, which are then sent on to literary agent Becky Thomas (of Johnson & Alcock), who decides the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.  For full submission details check out our contest page.  Good luck and see you in the slush pile!
