The Writers Bureau 6th Annual Writer of The Year Award!

It’s Writer of The Year time again at The Writers Bureau. Now in its 6th year this award celebrates the publishing success and personal growth of students past and present. And this year, for the first time, they are accepting video entries.

This competition is not just about who has had the most financial success with published work. It is also about how students feel the course has helped them develop as a writer and as a person. Entries could, for example, contain details about the oddest payment received or doing well in an unexpected genre. The Writers Bureau would also like to hear about students’ personal growth, for example finding new levels of confidence to speak in front of people or interview local celebrities.

Diana Nadin, Director of Studies, says:

Being recognised for your publishing success is a difficult business. So, we thought we’d hold an annual competition to give our students the chance to tell us, and the rest of the world, how well they’ve done since enrolling with us. Previous winners have gone on to achieve amazing success. Take Cindy-Lou Dale, for example, who came runner up in 2006 and was the winner in 2010 – hers is a story of fulfilling childhood dreams!

Entry is free and not only does the winner receive £250, they’ll also bag themselves a lot of free promotion. The winning entries will be featured on The Writers Bureau website, in printed and emailed publicity materials and, if entry is by video, on their YouTube channel. It’s a great way for writers to raise their profile and winners can add it to their portfolio of achievements.

As well as the £250 winner’s prize The Writers Bureau are offering four runners up awards of £50 each, could buy a few good market research books!

Theresa Gooda Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2021

“I began my first Writers Bureau course (Comprehensive Creative Writing) in 2007. Having more than covered the course fees from published pieces I have never looked back. Initially my ambitions were to get going. I knew I wanted to be a writer, I just didn’t know how to go about it, or, if I’m honest, quite what I wanted to write. Since, I have gradually blended a teaching career with writing, first with articles and short stories, then increasing the writing commitment dramatically when I secured an agent in 2016 to ghostwrite a series of memoirs. This year I have undertaken The Art of Writing Poetry course to really hone my skills in what I now realise is a genre I love - and have already had my first poems published.”
