Everyone at Hachette Children’s Group is so pleased to be continuing our hugely successful partnership with NWN for a second year. We’re incredibly excited about publishing the first winner of the NWN Hachette Children’s Novel Award, James Harris, with his debut middle-grade novel and we can’t wait to see all the new talent unearthed by the 2020 Award. It’s such a privilege to support and encourage writers at this early stage of their journey to publication.
