Historical fiction writing competition

Post by Augustus I » Thu August 1st, 2019, 9:54 am

Is anyone else interested in having their historical fiction published? I have just seen a decent competition by the Historical Writer’s Association and Sharpe Books to win a publishing contract and £500 pounds. There are runners up prizes too. Prize is for an unpublished historical novel.
It says it needs to be between 40,000 and 100,000 words.
Although the entry fee is £20 per manuscript, it looks like a really good way to get your foot in the door. Entrants receive consultation in relation to securing agent and book deal.
I put the link below because I thought some people here would be interested as I have read so many posts from those who have written their own historical fiction.

Worth a shot right?!?
