In partnership with New Writing South and Myriad Editions, Spotlight Books have launched an open call for unpublished poets and fiction writers from under-represented backgrounds—those who face barriers due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance.

They are looking for manuscripts of fiction (8-10,000 words) and poetry (40-45 pp. at 20 lines/page). Deadline: 24 February 2019

Six writers will be selected and supported to polish their manuscripts and further their careers, and be published in individual short books with worldwide distribution.
