Calls For Submission

Replacing HB Creativity's Instant Hook Writing Contest for this year (2017/18) will be the New Hook Writing Contest deadline (31st December, 2017)

The main change is this: your 250 word extract no longer has to be from the very beginning of your novel-in-progress, but the extract has to riff on classic or previously published work (in the public domain). Think Wide Sargasso Sea or Mrs De Winter or any of the many and various postcolonial takes on some well known earlier work. Your entry could even be a riff on a poem if you like, though, of course, the entry itself must be prose. There is no entry fee but a cash prize. For full details see my blog.
