Shortlist announced for the ‘One in Four’ new writer competition

Posted 7 February 2018

Last September, Gingerbread (in conjunction with Trapeze Books and The Pool) announced a competition to look for new writers. The submitted book proposals came from those with experience of single parent family life – whether the writer was a single parent, used to be, or was raised by one.

We received hundreds of submissions, and yesterday, announced the shortlisted entries. The shortlisted entries will be judged by a panel, and one will be selected as a winner and receive a publishing contract with Trapeze Books, an advance of £10,000 and three hours of mentoring by Sunday Times bestselling author Tilly Bagshawe.

The shortlisted entrants are as follows:

Hannah Campbell-Wharam
Jemma Wallace
Jo Barker
Linda Bryan
Paula Espinosa Valarezo
Ruth Murphy
Sam Pope
Shaun Dovaston
