Small books, big ideas– we’re looking for a few good writers.
Inventive. Hidden. Compelling. Unrecognised. Challenging. Unheard. Beautiful. Ambitious.
Creative Future, Myriad Editions and New Writing South seek the best unpublished English short fiction writers from under-represented backgrounds—those who face barriers due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance.
We’re looking for manuscripts of 8-10,000 words–no more, no less. We’re happy with one long story or a selection of several.
Six writers (three fiction writers and three poets) will be selected, supported to polish their manuscripts and further their careers, and be published in individual short books with international distribution.
