The New-Look Citizen Book Prize: Teen Fiction and Non-Fiction in the Spotlight

The Citizen

Pan Macmillan, in association with The Citizen newspaper, is pleased to announce preliminary details for the 2010 Citizen Book Prize, which has a new focus on works for teens.

From The Citizen:

The global phenomenon of young adult fiction has taken the worlds of publishing and film by storm in recent years, cultivating droves of fans, sparking off sub-cultures, converting many adults into “grown children” fans, and raking in billions in revenue for authors, filmmakers, merchandisers and a host of associated industries.

From the spell-binding halls of Hogwarts of the Harry Potter series, to the troubled teen-romance of Edward and Bella in Stephenie Meyer’s enigmatic Twilight saga, teen fiction has rocked many a fan’s world.

This year, The Citizen Book Prize, in association with Macmillan, gives you the chance to share your carefully crafted and riveting teen fiction and non-fiction for a teen market.

Hone your writing skills; do your research – read as much famous teen fiction and non-fiction as you can; have friends or colleagues edit your submissions…

You don’t want to miss out on your chance of being published and winning a prize, with The Citizen Book Prize 2010 for teen fiction and non-fiction – the only book prize decided by the voting public!

Submission details coming soon – watch this space!
