Due to the increasing number of scripts we currently receive on a daily basis, we have taken the decision to suspend submissions for the next few months while we catch up with reading.
However, we will be resuming submissions as normal on 1st March 2018 – World Book Day.

We would also like to make any visitors to our site aware that we have recently announced a new scholarship place at the Winchester Writers’ Festival 2018, 15th- 17th June. This brand-new scholarship will be awarded to a children’s fiction writer (YA or middle grade), of any age, from an under-represented background. The scholarship covers the cost of three days at the Festival, access to all workshops and talks, four one-to-one appointments with industry experts, all meals, accommodation and travel. For more information and to apply please follow this link: Lindsay Literary Scholarship

For ideas on the kind of writing we’re looking for, we’d love to find a British (or Irish) YA writer along the lines of Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or again a UK version of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Alternatively we love funny middle-grade like You’re a Bad Man Mr Gum by Andy Stanton and adventures with heart like The Abominables by Eva Ibbotson.
