The Bath Novel Awards are international prizes for emerging fiction talent.
Founded in the city of Bath in 2013, our prizes spotlight not-yet-published and independently published novelists and authors of children’s books.
Two prizes are awarded annually for the best manuscript as judged by literary agents. The Bath Novel Award invites submissions from December to May. The Bath Children’s Novel Award invites submissions from June to November.
New for 2024’s awards, the winners of each prize will receive £5,000.
Recipients include: Abi Daré for the manuscript of international bestseller The Girl with the Louding Voice; new James Bond author Kim Sherwood for Testament and Struan Murray for Orphans of the Tide.
