Madeleine will be helping to judge Bluepencilagency’s First Novel Award 2018. The Award is open to unrepresented and unpublished authors for a novel in any adult fiction genre

The winner will receive £1,000 plus an introduction to Madeleine, and the runner up receives £250 and a manuscript review from a Bluepencilagency editor.

Madeleine will be joined by co-judge Fiona Mitchell. Fiona says, “I’d love to see a brilliant character-led novel with a dynamic, original voice. I adore uplifting fiction, but am also a sucker for a book that turns me into an emotional wreck. Give me tight plots and a beautiful writing style and I’m a satisfied reader.”

The closing date is June 30th, and all other guidelines can be found on the Bluepencilagency’s website.

Good luck!
