Opportunity from: Irish Writers Centre

Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair 2025 is a literary competition that awards twelve first-time novelists to sit down and pitch their novels to leading publishers and agents. Described by The Irish Times as ‘A Dragons’ Den for writers,’ Novel Fair winners gain access to a two-day speed dating style event (one day in-person and one day online) where they will bypass the slush pile and place their manuscripts directly into the hands of industry professionals. Some winners have even gone on to sign contracts with literary agents and publishers.
