Flash 500 Novel Competition

 Full details

Welcome to the seventh year of our Novel Opening Chapter & Synopsis Competition!

Have you started, or completed, a novel with strong, credible characters and a page turning plot? Have you honed the first chapter? Can you put together a compelling one page synopsis of the balance of the story? Yes? Then why not enter our Novel Opening Chapter competition and have your work judged by Headline Publishing? We welcome published, self-published and unpublished novelists. The only stipulation is that the entry must be unpublished.

We are looking for an opening chapter up to 3,000 words, plus a one page synopsis outlining the balance of the story. If your chapter is longer than 3,000 words, DO NOT SUBMIT A LONGER MANUSCRIPT. Simply close the entry within the 3,000 word limit and make a note at the end (which will not be included in the word count) stating the chapter continues beyond this point.

This is an annual competition: entries close on 31st October 2020.

Entry fee: £10 for one novel, £18 for two novels, £26 for three novels

Optional critique of one chapter and Synopsis: £25 per story

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • First: £500
  • Runner up: £200
