Spotlight First Novel Competition is our way of celebrating and encouraging new writers. After some tough deliberations we are pleased to announce the winner of this year’s competition is Philip Bowne with Leaving Europe.

Other strong contenders were: Rikta Talukder Meatballs on Wednesday. Jane May Morrison Libertine. Oliver Harrison The Fallen Word. Sophie Haydock The Flames. Caroline Murphy The Truth about Chickens.

Thank you all for making our decision so difficult!

Philip Bowne has won a Stage One mentoring package and transitional support. We will be profiling him and his novel later in the year.
