Have you completed a children’s book? Is it set in Scotland, suitable for 8-12 year olds, around 40,000-70,000 words?
Yes?! – then you might be interested to know that the deadline for the annual Kelpies Prize is looming on 28th February.
here’s what they say…
From Dumfries to Dundee, Glasgow to Aberdeen and everywhere in between, we are looking for Scottish children’s novels with a difference.
Fantastic fantasies, sensational sci-fi, awesome adventures and satisfying slices of life — the Kelpies range of Scottish children’s novels has them all. But we are still looking for more. Do you have a cracking story, with strong characters and believable dialogue which children won’t be able to put down? Then we want to read it!
The Kelpies Prize was set up in 2004 to encourage and reward new Scottish writing for children. Winning authors receive a £2,000 cash prize and have their novel published in the Kelpies range.
