2022 Text Prize entries open
26 January 2022
Entries for the 2022 Text Prize, an award for the best unpublished manuscript by young adult and children’s writers, are open until Monday 21 February 2022.
Works of fiction and non-fiction from authors both published and unpublished can be submitted, with the winner receiving a publishing contract with Melbourne based publisher Text Publishing, and a ten-thousand dollar advance against royalties.
Applications are also open for the Steph Bowe Mentorship for Young Writers, a Text Publishing initiative to encourage the work of writers under the age of twenty-five. The mentorship honours the work of late Australian young adult author and blogger Steph Bowe, who died in 2020.
