Dear Felixstowe Scribblers,

Three winners from each region will be entered into a national final with a winning prize of £10,000 for General Fiction, £5,000 for Non-Fiction and £2,000 for Academic.

To register simply visit www.undiscoveredauthors.co.uk and complete the online Registration Form. Then send us a sample chapter (10,000 words max) and a synopsis (500 words max) of your work by 31st December 2005.

We are also running events at Starbucks’ stores across the country, encouraging people to come along and write the opening page of their book. Each participant will receive a free coffee and muffin whilst they write, and a prize of £100 and a Starbuck’s Coffee at Home set will be awarded for the best opening page. Please check our website for further information.(see note below)

We look forward to receiving your group’s entries.

Yours Faithfully
