Achieve your publishing goals for 2018 – win a year’s mentoring and development from Triskele Books

competition for writers - win a year's mentoring from manuscript to publicationHave you got a manuscript that might be ready by July 2018? You might be interested in this competition from the writing/publishing collective Triskele Books. And I’m honoured to announce that I’m the judge in the final!

If you’ve been around this blog a bit, you’ll know that Triskele is a publishing house owned and run by authors. The members provide all the support and editorial finessing that occur in a publishing house (many other posts about them here).

Anyone can enter, whether it’s your first book or whether you’ve published many times before. Triskele are looking for a standout manuscript they can help along and the winner can tailor their input to their needs – whether it’s polishing or developmental work or help with the nitty-gritty of publishing. Last year’s winner, Sophie Wellstood, was so excited after working with Triskele’s feedback that she pitched to a literary agent – and had representation in three days. The only proviso is that the manuscript must be unpublished. Other rules? You’ll find them here.

Triskele’s team will sift through the entries and choose six finalists … and then it’s my job to pick the final winner! I’m sure there will be adventures and insights to report, so stay tuned. If you want to tweet it there’s a hashtag #thebigfive. And perhaps you’d like to have a go.

    Very interesting… is a lovely offer, I like the deep involvement of the Triskele’s people based on such commitments. Unfortunately, “ethic” towards writers isn’t always matched with Publishing houses… Yes, it’s a great opportunity! Thank you for sharing, wishing you serenity into the 2018 :-)claudine

    The entry fee is in pounds? Do you accept the work of U.S. writers? Thanks,Pam

      Good question, Pam. I’m sure they’ll accept US writers. The Triskele authors are an international bunch – one lives in France and another in Switzerland. I’ll check just to make sure but I should think US writers are welcome. Stay tuned.
