If you are an aspiring writer, you may have read your fair share of books on the craft. A book that is found on the reading lists of countless creative writing courses is Stephen King’s On Writing.

‘Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference. They don't have to make speeches. Just believing is usually enough.’

We annually renew our belief in homegrown writing talent through the Montegrappa Writing Prize. So far, with the support of Montegrappa and London-based literary agency LBA, that belief has seen 8 participants published internationally.

So why not submit the start of your novel to one of the most successful writing competitions in the region. The competition is now live and this year we have opened the competition to not only UAE residents, but also to those living in the GCC*.

If you are an unpublished author embarking on your first novel, head over to our website and enter here. Or if you know an aspiring novelist, why not share this email, and show them a little belief.

*Eligible countries include: UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
