We’re very excited to announce the new annual Retreat West Novel Prize.
The aim is to find exciting new authors and bring their work to the world through the competition while also giving them a small advance for their novel and raising its profile in advance of publication. We specify that the writers must be previously unpublished, and without literary agent representation, as we want to give a chance to writers that may be finding it difficult to get published through the traditional route despite their novels being of a very high standard.
We’re hoping that by launching this annual competition we will also reach more writers that may not have heard of Retreat West Books yet and discover some truly excellent novels.
We’re looking forward to reading and discovering great new authors.
