Historical Novel Society New Novel Award 2018 – £2,000 Prize

Deadline: 31st December 2017

We are delighted to announce our latest award, and the intention that from now on it will become an annual prize. As usual there is a valuable cash prize of £2000 (or an equivalent sum in USD). As usual we have an expert team of readers, and will appoint an eminent independent judge. The competition is for a completed novel that has not been accepted for publication by a traditional publishing house. In the first instance only the opening 5000 words of the novel will be assessed, and so manuscripts do not need to be complete at the time of entry. Shortlisted authors, however, must submit a full manuscript.
