A cornerstone of this annual festival is the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize (now in its second year), which is awarded to a remarkable, unpublished female fiction writer over the age of 21 who successfully combines literary merit with "unputdownability" in their entry.
To enter the competition, participants will need to submit the first 30 pages of an unpublished novel and a synopsis of the remainder of the novel (max. 10 pages long).
Deadline: Friday 27 April 2012.
The Judging Panel for the 2012 competition will consist of:
- Rowan Pelling, Daily Telegraph columnist
- Isobel Maddison, Director of Studies in English, Lucy Cavendish College
