Get it pictured

In association with author Amy Sparkes and literary agent Julia Churchill, we launch a new prize for picture books… and Amy explains how it’s done

The picture book industry is very competitive and although there are many prizes for new talent in the children’s fiction category, there is currently little available for aspiring picture book writers. Being passionate about inspiring and encouraging new writers, Writing Magazine is delighted to announce a new award: the Writing Magazine Picture Book Prize. The award will highlight new talent and help open doors into the world of publishers and agents.

And whats the prize?

First place: the winner will be offered a lunch consultation with top children’s fiction agent Julia Churchill, a year’s subscription to Writing Magazine and £200.

Second place: the runner-up will be offered a picture book critique by Amy Sparkes through Writing Magazine Writing Courses, a subscription to Writing Magazine and £50.
