New Writing Ventures
Mon 16 May 2005
New Writing Ventures is a series of national prizes being launched by The New Writing Partnership in collaboration with Arts Council England. The submission closing date is 1 July 2005.
The initiative is designed to help launch the careers of writers who are expected to make an impact on the world of books, writers and readers in the coming years. The winner in each of the three categories in 2005 will receive £5,000. In addition, the winners and two shortlisted writers will be given development opportunities by Arts Council England in the region of £5,000 to support bespoke individual development plans which could include workshops, mentoring and professional advice.

The awards are administered by Booktrust and the submission deadline is 1 July 2005. The shortlisted authors will be announced in September 2005, and the awards will be presented at the second edition of New Writing Types held in Norwich from 24-28 October 2005.
