PEN SA President Margie Orford is on the judging panel for the Half the World Global Literati Award, a new literary prize which will go to a short story, novel or screenplay written in English, that is judged to “have portrayed one or more well-rounded female protagonists as the central character”.
The award is now open for submissions:
We are looking for short stories, novels and screenplays, written in English, that give a voice to the inner lives of women. Your work can be romantic; a tale of science fiction; a sensual or erotic exploration; a comic caper; a thrilling mystery or a biographical memoir. We ask only that it gives fresh insight into the lives of women.
- Generous cash prize and global exposure
- Collaboration opportunities in multiple areas of entertainment
- Open to works across a range of genres
