Wanted: a wine drinker who can write
Pavilion Books, in association with The Circle of Wine Writers, run an annual award to help develop promising new wine writers. To enter you have to write 1500 on any aspect of wine.
Applicants have to live in the UK and can’t already be an established wine writer (so people with a regular magazine column or who have had a wine book published aren’t eligible). There is a catch though – you have to be under 30. Ah well (heavy sigh).
The prizes are worth winning. The winner will receive £1000 to travel to a wine region to gain firsthand experience and to develop a book or article based on that experience PLUS an all expenses 14 day holiday to the wine regions of Australia.
Deadline for applications – 30th September 2013
Email your entry and CV as Word documents/PDFs to Charlotte Selby at Pavilion Books (subject line: Young Wine Writer Award). Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
