Young Northern Writers’ Awards
Our Young Writers’ Awards are presented as part of the Northern Writers’ Awards. They recognise and support young writers based in the North of England.
Applications for the awards are accepted in two ways:
Nomination from an adult working with the young person (for example, parents, teachers or other adults).
Application directly from the young person.
You can read more about the awards, including submissions guidelines and information on eligibility criteria here.
If you have any questions about either the Young Northern Writer Award or the Matthew Hale Award please contact the NWN Young Writers team on [email protected].
*Please note the North of England is defined as the areas covered by Arts Council England in Yorkshire, North East and North West. We regret we are unable to accept submissions from outside these areas due to conditions in our funding from Arts Council England.
