Writing Opportunity – Master of the Inkpot Competition

Calling all writers!

Charles Dickens was certainly Master of the Inkpot.

Charles Dickens was certainly Master of the Inkpot.

The Oxford publishers, David Fickling Books are opening their doors to submissions from May 5th 2015 until May 19th 2015.  However, this event has got a twist to it and instead of it being the usual accepting unsolicited manuscripts malarkey, it is a competition.  Within three months of the closing date, a shortlist of five will be drawn up and from that a Master of the Inkpot will be crowned. I know that sounds painful but I don’t think that those nice people at David Fickling Books actually mean to drop something heavy on your head, it simply means that you will be invited to their offices in Oxford to discuss your work.

Even though we tend to think of David Fickling Books mainly as children’s publishers, they are willing to accept adult manuscripts for this competition and all entries will be given consideration.

Only one entry per person, please.

Both postal and electronic submissions will be accepted.

So what are you waiting for? Follow this link to find out more.


Happy writing.
