Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize

This one’s just for the ladies, I’m afraid. The prize is £1000 plus an editorial report and ‘advice about publication from the judges’, Sophie Hannah and Professor Janet Todd. The five short-listed entrants get a ritzy prize-giving dinner at Lucy Cavendish College on Thursday 9 June.

Any genre is accepted, but you must be female and over 21. You are not eligible to enter if you have had a full-length novel published previously.

To enter, post the first 30 pages of your novel and a synopsis to arrive no later than Friday 29 April. For full details go here.
