Fiction uncovered open for self published authors

BooksFor the first time, self-published as well as published writers will be able to submit entries for Fiction Uncovered. Fiction submissions of all kinds – including novels, collections of short stories and graphic novels are welcome. Eight books will be chosen by a judging panel with the aim of  celebrating the best of contemporary British fiction. The eight will be promoted (through Fiction Uncovered website, an annual retail promotion, author events, and its pop-up radio station) The selection announced in June 2014

In previous years, submissions of short story collections have been very low, so in 2014 The Literary Platform who oversee Fiction Uncovered will be working with The Word Factory, an organisation specialising in events and masterclasses for short story writers, to raise the number of short story collection submissions.

Fiction Uncovered is Arts Council funded.
