Read below what I've been getting up to.
Penguin's WriteNow Publishing Programme
I have been longlisted for Penguin's WriteNow award-winning programme which aims to find, nurture and publish new writers from communities under-represented on the nation's bookshelves. I sent in an excerpt of one my stories and I have been accepted into the first workshop on how to get published this July.
From there, I'll receive one-to-one feedback on 5000 words of my story from an ACTUAL Penguin editor which is so invaluable as a writer. Nearly 4000 people entered this programme this year and only 300 writers have got to this stage.
Potentially I'll able to join Penguin's year-long programme with an editor to offer expert support and advice while I work on my book and hopefully be in with the chance to get it published!
