PrizeWriting retreat and mentoring
Your first page is so important. It’s your chance to capture readers’ attention and get them so immersed that they’ll want to keep reading.
Your first page could also win you a fabulous writing retreat.
Submit the opening 400 words of your novel, memoir or short story into Retreat West’s Best Opening Page Competition by 23rd August and you could enjoy a week’s uninterrupted writing at Casa Ana in Spain along with a session with resident mentor, Amanda Saint.
The Casa Ana retreat and mentoring, worth £1,000, is set to take place in November 2020 but, if that is not possible, the prize can be transferred to 2021.
Second prize is a half-price writing retreat at Casa Ana and third prize is feedback on your opening page from Amanda Saint.
