There's still time to submit your entry for the Primadonna Prize. We all have a book inside us, so they say, and the first step to topping the best-sellers list is to write a mere 500 words and enter the Primadonna Prize, obviously. The first round of entries will call for each entrant to submit 500 words of new writing, (fiction or non-fiction) on the theme of ‘Primadonna’. Those shortlisted from round one will be invited to submit entries of 3000 – 5000 words. This must be previously unpublished. All second-round entries must be accompanied by a summary of the written entry. For fiction submissions, we will need an accompanying ‘back-of-book’ blurb of 250 words max, and for non-fiction an overview of the finished project, also 250 words max. A small entry fee of £8 is payable on submission
. This cost is however, redeemable against the full cost of a weekend festival ticket. If this entry fee cannot be met, free entries are available. Judges for the Prize are jaw-dropping. Joanne Harris, Lemn Sissay and Neil Hegarty, alongside some of the Primadonnas, and you are literally
the first people to know this. That's what we call a newsletter exclusive!
