Dear Group Member,

I am writing to inform you about Undiscovered Authors, a nationwide writing competition run by BookForce, a London based publishing company. Undiscovered Authors is the UK’s first national competition aimed at seeking out new literary talent on any subject, and is open to everyone aged 18 and over.

In order to build on the impressive breadth, diversity and quality of last year’s entries, we were hoping that some members of your association might want to communicate their wide, specialized knowledge by submitting a work to our competition, furthering exposure and public understanding of their chosen field of interest. We are looking for people with interesting insights, facts or stories to convey, from a fantasy science fiction novel, an astronomy guide, research into Evolution, understanding of the Nuclear Age, Forensics, a history of influential Scientists, Dietetics, a paper on Biochemistry…the possibilities, as you can see are endless! Entries can be on any subject matter, under the categories of General Fiction, Non-Fiction and Academic. The competition is launching in 16 different regions across the UK and Ireland with great financial rewards of £1,000 per category for each region. The competition is open for works of Non Fiction. Academic Literature and General Fiction. These three categories are open to unpublished writers, plus we have introduced a new and separate category for Previously Published Authors. There is a top national prize of £10,000, plus all winners will also receive a publishing contract with Discovered Authors Diamonds. To enter the competition an online registration form must be completed, and a full work and synopsis provided by the closing date of 31st January 2007.

Undiscovered Authors is designed to encourage anyone to become published to whatever level they may aspire……they do say there’s a book in each of us!

Please find more information at, including details of mini opening page competitions at a location near you. If you need any more details please do not hesitate to contact me directly on 0207 529 3747 or [email protected] and I would be happy to discuss the competition in more detail.

Yours Faithfully
