Last Chance for Writers to Enter National Book Award

Last Chance for Writers to Enter National Book Award


New Zealand writers have until the 31 May, 2014 to enter their uplifting work into The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Published Book Award for their chance to win $10,000.

The award recognises exceptional published writing talent in the Mind Body Spirit genre with one of the largest prizes awarded for literature in New Zealand.

In the 11th year of the awards, spokesperson for The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust, Adonia Wylie is encouraging local writers to enter their published books into the prestigious award.

“Entry numbers grow each year, showing the popularity of the topic and we always find it fascinating to read the works entered, and widen our understanding of the field.

“There’s always great work in the Mind Body Spirit genre and we want to both recognise and reward those in the field for their outstanding writing,” she says.

To be eligible for the $10,000 award, published books must be submitted by 31 May 2014, should be 48 pages or longer and must have been published between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2014. Writers must also be New Zealand residents or permanent residents residing in the country.

In addition to the Unpublished Manuscript Award category, The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust is also presenting a $10,000 award to the author of an uplifting published manuscript. Entries for this category closed on 31 March, 2014.

Both awards will be presented at a ceremony at The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust’s own venue, Hopetoun Alpha in Auckland on Friday 15 August, 2014.

Submission forms and entry details are available from www.awct.org.nz/bookawards.asp or from The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust office, phone: 0800 367 242, e-mail: awctbookawards@ebco.co.nz or post: PO Box 68982 Newton Auckland 1145.
