6th November 2014

Janklow & Nesbit UK are offering representation to the winner of a debut novel competition launched today in association with Mumsnet and Gransnet. Users of Mumsnet and Gransnet can submit the first 8,000 words of a novel, along with a 500-word outline of the remaining chapters, by January 30th 2015. A shortlist will be selected, with the winner announced in March 2015.

As part of the competition, a one-day Get Published event will be held in London on Saturday 29th November where writers will get a chance to meet Janklow agents, leading editors and authors. There will be panel discussions and an opportunity to pitch directly to industry insiders.

Mumsnet is a huge online community, generating over 60 million page views and over 13 million visits per month. We know from the success of their book club how engaged their members are and it feels like the perfect place to discover new talent.

Justine Roberts, Mumsnet CEO and Founder said:

“Mumsnet and Gransnets’ forums are teeming with great writing and shared stories. Joining forces with Janklow & Nesbit will give one talented user a substantial helping hand towards realising the dream prize of getting published and enabling their writing to reach a whole new audience.”
