Our inaugural Pitch Prize with Peters, Fraser + Dunlop agent Nelle Andrew attracted over 300 entries. Writers submitted their opening 500 words and synopsis for the chance to pitch their novel and receive feedback from Nelle. Up to 10 winners will have a one on one meeting with Nelle in February 2020.
The standard was very high with entries across all genres and from writers around the world. It’s so important to get your opening right to pull in the reader and make them want to read on. We will be announcing the winners in December and tweeting some of our favourite opening lines.
