About the Prize
The Commonword Children’s Diversity Writing Prize welcomes submissions from unpublished children’s authors whose writing embraces ethnic diversity either through their own ethnicity and culture and/or in their writing.
The winner’s prize will be as follows:
- £500 cash, to be paid by cheque.
- Professional mentoring will be from Marjacq Scripts Ltd – this will consist of a full manuscript assessment and an initial meeting to discuss representation potential. There is no obligation for Marjacq Scripts Ltd to agree to professionally represent the winner.
- An Arvon course of their choice in 2017 (subject to availability*)
The runners up will be offered detailed feedback on their manuscript by Commonword
The closing date for entries is: 6th June 2016
