The Shortlist

One of The Write Factor’s key goals is to help nurture and encourage the talent and imagination of writers, and the way we do this is through our annual ‘Shortlist.’

We invite budding writers who are previously unpublished to submit the first 2,000 words of their novel, memoir, short story or article to The Write Factor where it will be assessed by our team. The top five stories will then be forwarded to a panel of judges (published writers and editors) for final evaluation.

The winner will receive a Special Award that could range from prize money to a short course at The Arvon Foundation; from full representation to free manuscript services.

Details of the Shortlist for 2014 will be announced shortly.
