Spotlight Books

Small books, big ideas–we’re looking for a few good writers.

Inventive.  Hidden.  Compelling.  Unrecognised.  Challenging.  Unheard.  Beautiful.  Ambitious.

Creative Future, Myriad Editions and New Writing South seek the best poets and fiction writers from under-represented backgrounds—those who face barriers due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance.

We’re looking for manuscripts of fiction (8-10,000 words) and poetry (40-45 pp. at 20 lines/page).  Six writers will be selected, supported to polish their manuscripts and further their careers, and be published in individual short books.

Deadline: 24 February 2019
