Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize

Found in: News

The Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize is an annual award for adventure writing. The award is split into two separate categories – a prize for the best published adventure novel of the previous calendar year and a prize for the best unpublished adventure manuscript submitted for consideration. 

The winner of the prize for a published novel will receive £10,000. The winner of the prize for an unpublished manuscript will be offered the Writer’s Adventure Research Award. The award is an exceptional opportunity in the form of a £5,000 grant, enabling the winner to travel to undertake invaluable research for their next story. They will also be offered guidance from Wilbur’s literary agents at Tibor Jones & Associates. 

Entries can be submitted from the 31st of October 2016 until the 15th of March 2017.

The competition is open to writers of any nationality writing in English.
