Run by Farnham Literary Festival, Farnham’s First Five Thousand Writing Competition is seeking the first 5,000 words of unpublished novels with no theme or style restrictions. It has an exceptional panel of judges featuring four brilliant writers, editors and/or educators. It also has a very affordable entry fee (compared to most novel competitions!) and the winner will receive a literary critique of their work (along with the £100 cash prize!). Note that all five shortlisted works will be published on the Farnham Literary Festival website.
