Janklow & Nesbit, a leading literary and media agency, working with Brixton BookJam are searching for the next big debut author.
In a rare opportunity to get your work bumped up the pile of submissions and carefully assessed by an agent, we are asking you to submit the first 5,000 words of your novel plus a short outline detailing how the story develops. We are looking for everything: commercial crime, historical novels, psychological thrillers, literary fiction... we want a novel that will make us catch our breath and an idea that will race off the page and leave us hungry for more. We think you’re just the right people to give it to us!
All entries will be judged by leading agents at Janklow & Nesbit with the finalists invited to read at the BookJam event in December along with celebrated authors. The winner will be given the opportunity to have a meeting with literary agent Hellie Ogden of Janklow & Nesbit UK, to discuss their writing, plans for future work and routes to publication. Deadline October 1st.
