Last year, many writers who submitted unpublished work said they would appreciate feedback on their entry. So this year we’re offering a paid feedback service for any unpublished submission. This can be ordered at the time of entry or any time up until 31st December 2019.

One of our industry readers or judges will produce a 3-5 page report on your one-page synopsis and 5000 word opening chapters. This will be sent to you by email within a month of your order.

The report will cover:

  • First impression
  • Strength/originality of idea
  • Character
  • Style
  • Dialogue
  • Brief recommendations

The cost is £65.


This feedback will be dealt with entirely separately from your entry to the prize and does not affect its eligibility or prospects in any way.

See Feedback Guidelines for how to order when you enter or at a later date. Please read the T&Cs for this service on the Feedback submission form.
