First Page Competition

Mon 1 January 0001 - Wed 4 March 2020
Wharf Chambers

Leeds Lit Fest presents

“Grab ‘em with your first sentence!” If your short story or novel demands to be heard, our First Page Competition could be the place for you. Your first page is crucial if you want to grab the attention of a time-strapped editor or agent. Whether you write horror, sci-fi, or literary fiction, make your opening snag our judges’ attention, and you could be our first ever First Page winner! Entrants will read the first six hundred words of their novel or short story in front of an audience, and an expert panel of judges who will be authors and experts. Nobody will go home empty handed. Every single entrant to the First Page Competition will receive a short piece of constructive, personalised feedback on the night which will help them improve their work for the better.

Booking is now open for a small number of contestants' slots. To book one of these, email
