2 weeks left to apply for #WriteNowLive London!

A reminder of this great scheme just came into my inbox. Apply apply! Events in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Penguin Random House wants to find, mentor and publish new writers with different stories to tell. Writers from communities under-represented on the nation’s bookshelves.

Are you the next Malorie Blackman?

Or Wolverhampton’s answer to James Patterson?

Are you writing the next epic love story, featuring Romeo and Julian?

If so, we’d love to meet you.

This includes unpublished writers from socio-economically marginalised backgrounds, writers who come from LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer) and BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) communities, and writers with a disability.

Through WriteNow, Penguin Random House is offering 150 writers one-to-one time with editors as well as access to literary agents, booksellers and published authors, including Kit de Waal, Bali Rai and Sathnam Sanghera. Ten exceptional writers will go on to benefit from a year of mentoring with the goal of having their book published.

Join us on Saturday 1 October in London, 26 November in Birmingham, or 4 February 2017 in Manchester.

Visit www.write-now.live to find out more and apply. Applications for our London event close on Friday 2 September.
