DLF Local Writing Prize.
The Dorchester Literary Festival is launching its first annual DLF Local Writing Prize, to encourage and support local writers. This is a fantastic opportunity for writers whose work has been published on a local level to gain national exposure, and notice from literary establishment figures.
Entries should be submitted by the 28 February 2018, written for adults, not children, and have been published and sold as printed copies, not just in a digital format, within three years prior to submission.
A judging panel, including professional writers and a leading literary agent, will then compile the shortlist to be announced at the end of May. They will then hold an event involving the shortlisted authors hosted by a leading writer in July 2018 announcing the winner, who will receive a prize of £1,000. Submissions in hard copy format should be sent to: DLF Local Writing Prize, Winfrith House, High Street, Winfrith Newburgh, Dorchester, Dorset DT2 8JW.
