This year’s New Rose Prize saw entries across five categories: Literary, Crime, Young Adult, Romantic Comedy and First Chapter. And, after much deliberation, the judges have made their decision…
Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who entered for sharing their work with us. It is no mean feat to put your work ‘out there’, but we appreciate the effort and bravery of all our entrants this year. Secondly, a massive thank you to our wonderful judging panel: Jamie Guiney, Mel Sherratt, Tamsyn Murray (and me!)
So, without further ado, here are the winners of the New Rose Prize 2013:
