UK awards organisation builds digital hub for emerging writers
In the UK, the Young Writer of the Year Award (YWYA) has launched a free online hub for emerging and aspiring writers, reports the Bookseller.
YWYA is hosting free content on its website youngwriteraward.com to help writers at the beginning of their careers. The website features monthly ‘how-to’ guides, articles by well-known UK authors such as Paul Beatty, Anne Enright, Ian Rankin and Nick Hornby, ‘top tips’ posts by experts including journalists from The Sunday Times, and guest posts from publishers, writers and literary experts from the British Council.
Sponsored by literary agency Peters Fraser and Dunlop, YWYA rewards the best work of fiction, nonfiction or poetry by a British or Irish author aged between 18 and 35 years. The 2018 winner will be announced at the London Library on 6 December.
