Are you an Aussie writer with a MG or YA manuscript ready to go? Then this is for you.

Here is the info I recieved via email:

You have until Friday 28th July 2017 to send in your middle-grade or young adult manuscript.

Before submitting your manuscript please ensure you check the Ampersand Entry Process on our website, to make sure you are aware of all entry requirements and that you format your submission correctly.

Once you have familiarised yourself with the information on the website, submissions and any queries can be sent through to

For those who have entered in previous years, please note that we have added a new submission requirement this year. In addition to a cover sheet, synopsis and manuscript, you are now also required to submit a 100-word overview of why you wrote your manuscript. This can include information such as where your inspiration came from, why you wanted to tell this particular story, whether it’s an own-voice manuscript, and so on.

Best of luck with your submission! The Ampersand team is bouncing with excitement and looks forward to receiving your middle-grade or young adult manuscript.
