Sponsored entries for low income writers

SPONSORED ENTRIES BNA

Our gratitude to Kit de Waal for her generosity and assistance in establishing our sponsorship scheme for writers on a low income. Since 2018 over 200 writers have received free entry for our awards.

All administration work for this scheme is donated by our team with the cost of commissioning reader reports supported by sponsorship.

Our sincere thanks to author Ruth Moore for sponsoring four children’s writers for the Bath Children’s Novel Award 2021.
