Six-figure book deal for Mslexia prize winner

Don’t you sometimes have a sneaky suspicion that writing competitions are just about collecting the entry fee? Well think again! News that Rosie Garland has just signed a six-figure deal with Harper Collins for her book, The Beast in All Her Loveliness brightens the most cynical heart.

Rosie won first prize in Mslexia’s inaugural 2011 women’s novel competition.

Just the spur to finish that novel!
