Details:

 

SCBWI British Isles will once again help fresh, new voices in children’s literature find agents and publishers through its Undiscovered Voices project.

 

To officially launch the contest, we’re holding an evening event on the 2nd May consisting of two panel discussions – one for writers, one for illustrators – in which our panel of industry judges will offer invaluable advice for those planning to submit to the anthology. Tickets are free but you must be registered to attend via the SCBWI British Isles website before the 20th April 2017. We are grateful to Hachette UK for hosting this event. Instructions for the evening will be sent after the registration deadline.

 

The Undiscovered Voices anthology will include twelve fiction extracts – from early readers through to young adult novels – and up to twelve black-and-white illustrations. The anthology will be published in February 2018 and sent free of charge to editors, art directors and agents whose focus is children’s literature. The book is produced with the financial support of Working Partners Ltd, a London-based company that creates series fiction.

 

Submissions will be accepted between 1st July to 15th August 2017 via an online submissions process. There is no submissions’ fee, but only unagented and unpublished members of SCBWI living in the UK and Europe (writing in the English language) are eligible.

 

Authors and illustrators from the five previous anthologies have received publishing contracts for more than 200 books. The authors have been nominated for and won an amazing array of literary prizes: including the Carnegie Medal, Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, Branford Boase Award, Blue Peter Award, the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award, and more than 30 regional awards.
