Donna Freed with Sara Cox, founder of the Cheshire Novel Prize

Jan 18, 10:11 AM

Sara Cox is a  writer, editor and coach. After completing her MA in Creative Writing, Sara set up her own editing business. In 2021, tired of literary prizes that offered no feedback, Sara set up her own and The Cheshire Novel Prize for unrepresented, unpublished or self-published writers was born. 

In its first year The Cheshire Novel Prize attracted 998 entrants and each entrant received personalised feedback and the top winners got agents. 

The prize is now also open to un-agented memoir writers and is accepting submissions until 1st April 2023. @prize_novel @saranaidinecox #CheshireNovelPrize
