Writing Opportunity: The Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize

So, it's Friday. Thank God it's Friday. Here's some prize you may be interested in...if you have an unpublished book.

The Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize was born out of a desire to discover and promote new and exciting writers, to celebrate compelling new voices in fiction. Entrants for the prize must have completed, or be close to completing, a novel. The fiction can embrace any genre, the story and the writing should be distinctive, absorbing and, above all, Pageturning.

The winner will receive representation plus £1000, and will be announced at the 2011 London Book Fair.
All submissions must be sent via email to
