Sick of toiling away at your novel without knowing if it will ever really get published? Well, you're really really really not alone.

With millions of struggling writers all hoping to become the next big thing, it's a frustratingly competitive field. Which is why we have quite the excellent proposition for you.

We've teamed up with Greene & Heaton, the leading literary agency who represent authors such as PD James and Sarah Waters, to offer a once in a lifetime prize. One budding author will win an agent for an entire year. Free of charge.

For the next two months, we'll be on the lookout for the best undiscovered talent in the country. We want you to send in a taster of your book and the winning entry will receive 12 months of one on one coaching including face-to-face meetings and written feedback with Chris Wellbelove of Greene & Heaton.

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
