The judges’ meeting has now taken place and everyone who entered for a Northern Writers’ Award this year has been contacted by email with the outcome of their submission. We’ll be announcing the winners at the awards ceremony on Tuesday 18 June and will put the news up here as soon as they’re announced.

If you entered for an award but haven’t heard back yet, please check your spam folder first. If you still haven’t received an email from us, please email office@newwritingnorth.com as soon as possible.

Thank you to everyone who entered. With over 800 submissions, we’ve been surprised and delighted by the high standard of writing in the north of England, and we look forward to reading more of your work in years to come.
