Major publisher is reaching out to emerging writers in the regions of the UK usually ignored

Are you an unpublished writer: ficton or non-fiction? Do you have a story to tell about the region, city, town or village you call home ?

Weidenfeld & Nicolson (part of The Orion Publishing Group)  is launching a series of short books – Hometown Tales – featuring new voices from regions that are under-represented in the UK book market. Each book will include a work by an unpublished writer and one by a high-profile author, both writing about the same place. The series will be a platform for new writers, helping them to launch the first step of their careers, edited and mentored by editors at W&N.

Writers who have not published a full-length work are invited to apply to feature in Hometown Tales by submitting a piece of fiction or non-fiction, of approximately 15,000 words, about a place in the UK, including Northern Ireland, where they were born or where they have lived. It can be a village, a town, a city or a region.

Send your 15,000-word piece of fiction or non-fiction to hometown@orionbooks.co.uk by 31 January 2017. You can find more information on the Weidenfield & Nicolson website
