Victoria Hobbs to judge Caledonia Novel Award 2019

Calling all new writers! The Caledonia Novel Award opens for entries 1 May 2018 and seeks unpublished and self-published novelists, offering a prize of £1000. The prize is open to adult and young adult writing, and to all genres of fiction.

We are delighted to announce that AM Heath Literary Agent Victoria Hobbs will be judging the award this year.

Victoria represents a broad range of authors in fiction and non-fiction, many of whom are bestselling and prize-winning. She is always looking for debut writers and new voices, and is open to submissions across all genres.

In her Q&A with the Caledonia Novel Award, Victoria unpacks what she loves to read, what she looks for in a writer, some of the highlights of her career as an agent, and her advice for entrants to the Caledonia Novel Award.

The Caledonia Novel Award has an excellent reputation for recognising writers at the beginning of their careers and many former winners have found success and publication. The deadline for entries to the 2019 competition is 1 November 2018.
