Novel Fair

The Irish Writers Centre has launched the next Novel Fair. The last two have been very successful in getting novels to publishers and out there. I do wonder how many of those already published or nearly there would have been picked up anyway.

The Prize

Twelve entrants will be anonymously selected by a judging panel to take part in the Irish Writers’ Centre Novel Fair on February 22nd, 2014. Each writer will have a stand at the Fair where they will present the synopsis of their novel, the finished novel itself and biographical material. Top Irish publishers and agents will be invited to the Irish Writers’ Centre to meet these writers in person.

Entry Details

There is no limitation on style, genre, or target market, the only requirement being that the writer has not published a novel before.
To enter send a synopsis and up to 10,000 words of a novel.
Deadline for submissions: October 16th, 2013.

I stumbled across your blog when I did a google search for Creative Writing MAs in Ireland (those posts were from ages ago though I think). Nice blog, added to me blogroll.

Did you ever check out the MA in UCC? Any suss on it?

All the best,

Hi Harry. Thanks for dropping by. I didn't know there was an MA in UCC now. I haven't heard anything about it (goo or bad!)
