Pulp Idol 2016

Pulp Idol is a unique writing competition for novelists, which focuses on supporting new original voices and getting them heard. We provide a platform 
for up-and-coming writers, helping with exposure to new audiences and providing contacts with key publishers and agents. 

‘The Pulp Idol competition is a unique award. These finalists really had some guts to lay themselves open to this experience – and then to being critiqued by us! It truly was a celebration of the spoken word, in so many forms. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all the shortlisted authors for sharing their fabulous work with us. I can’t wait to read - and hear - what they all write next!’ Laura Longrigg, MBA Literary Agents.

‘The standard of work this year is excellent. It's an honour to be involved in such an exciting competition, filled with local talent. Give it a couple of years and I’m sure a lot of these authors will be gracing our bookshelves.’ James Rice, Author - Alice and the Fly 
‘I loved judging the prize; the quality of submissions was exceptionally high with a colourful variety of work.’ Hellie Ogden, Literary Agent, Janklow and Nesbit
