Pulp Idol 2015 Competition Open!

THE Liverpool writing competition, for novelists, 'Pulp Idol', has already had 8 new writers published by major publishers and is back again for another year! The writing competition is run by a well supported local group called:- 'Writing on the Wall' whose Co-Director, Mike Morris, told us:- "We have had great success from previous finalists and hope that once again this competition provides an inspiring opportunity for writers. We hope that it will get our winners more than a foot through the door. Our aim is to support new writers by providing those who win this year's competition with both help and exposure."

The prizes this year include:-

Getting your work read by an agent/publisher.

► Publication in a collection of 1st chapters by Writing on the Wall.

► The winner will have the chance to meet personally with a publisher/agent.

One of the major success stories of this competition has lead to the finding of an exceptional new young British talent, James Rice. Since his 2010 win, he has had 2 book deals with Hodder and Stoughton, for his novel:- 'Alice and the Fly' (ISBN: 9781444790108). That novel was featured in the competition's winner's book, called:- 'Firsts', published in 2011. He told us that:- "As I say on the 'Writing on the Wall' website, I am truly indebted to this competition. I think that Pulp Idol's a great way to help writers to develop and if you win, to make connections within publishing industry. If you're serious about writing, you should enter. You never know what will happen! Plus if you don't win, try again and use it to focus your mind so you can develop your talent!"

To enter you have to go online

The closing date for the competition is Monday, 6 April 2015 at 5pm. 

For further information about the competition can be obtained via contacting the organisers on:- 0151 703 0020.
