Winning the Luke Bitmead bursary will earn you a publishing contract and £2,500 cash. It's free to enter and open to anyone over 16 who hasn't had a novel traditionally published and who's written a complete novel for adults.
The organisers are particularly interested in entries from those whose personal or financial circumstances make it difficult for them to focus on writing.
Playwrights will probably want to have a look at this. The prize fund is £40,000!
