Greenhouse Funny Prize Launched

In an effort to attract more humorous submission, the Greenhouse Literary Agency has launched a new prize open to all unagented authors.

For full details follow the link but here are the essentails:

The Greenhouse Funny prize is open to un-agented writers who are currently resident in the UK and Ireland. Entries will be judged by me (that's Julia Chrchill) and guest judge Leah Thaxton, Publisher of Egmont Children's Books (and discoverer of Andy Stanton).

The winner will get an offer of representation from the Greenhouse and a full weekend ticket to the wonderful Festival of Writing that runs 7-9 September '12 (worth £525). The winner will also be presented with a bottle of champagne at the Festival's gala dinner on the Saturday night. The runners up will each get five of my favourite funny books, and maybe even a comedy mug.

Entry guidelines:

To get a good sense of the voice and where the character is headed, we'd like to see the first 5,000 words PLUS a short description (a few lines) of the book AND a one page outline that shows the spine of the plot.

If you are submitting a picture book (or shorter fiction that comes in under 5,000 words), then send the complete text.

Please send your entries to
