The Montegrappa Writing Prize 2018 is now open!
In 2013, I became the first person to win the Montegrappa Writing Prize for unpublished authors at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. To say it changed my life would be an understatement. Not only did I win professional validation from judge Luigi Bonomi of LBA Agency in London, but I won a foot in the door of the literary world.
Luigi Bonomi guided me through getting my manuscript ready to sell, then secured me a three-book publishing contract, which was later renewed for another three books with HQ Stories at Harper Collins.
Unpublished writers in the UAE, this could be the break you’ve been waiting for. All you need to do is enter 2,000 words and a synopsis. Find out everything you need to know, and how to enter, here.
