Winners of City Novel Studio Competition 2015 Announced

We are delighted to announce the winners of our City Novel Studio Competition 2015

We are delighted to announce the winners of 2015’s City Novel Studio Competition. In association with Christine Green Author’s Agency, the competition was open to unpublished novelists writing in any fictional genre for adults, but not non-fiction or fiction for children. Course Director, Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone, and Novel Studio Tutor, Kirstan Hawkins, sifted through the numerous entries and have now made their final decisions. The winners are:

Hannah Begbie
Louise Beere
Jen Glyn

“There were some very strong contenders for the Novel Studio Competition this year,” said Rebekah. “Each of the finalists produced writing with a skill and authority that left me eager to read more. I have high expectations of what this year's Novel Studio students will go on to achieve in the future.”

Commenting on the finalists, top literary agent Christine Green said: "I enjoyed each one of them hugely - they are very different pieces but each has a strong voice and each one left me wanting more. Without hesitation I can say that I'd love to see more from each of them...Three very talented women."

Congratulations to Hannah, Louise and Jen. A terrific start to their Novel Studio year!
