The Portobello Prize for Narrative Non-fiction

Portobello Prize logoThe Portobello Prize was established in 2017 to showcase the most exciting new voices in narrative non-fiction, offering debut writers an opportunity to seek out and publish an untold story that reflects our times.

From its inception, Portobello Books has championed writers who have shone a spotlight on unexplored issues, unvisited places and under-reported stories.

The inaugural 2017 Portobello Prize is open to any UK citizen or UK-based writer who is unpublished in book form, and entries can be submitted from 16th June to 16th October 2017.

The judging panel consists of: Ben Rawlence (author of City of Thorns), Sharmaine Lovegrove (film & TV scout and literary editor), Sophie Lambert (Literary Agent, C+W), Marion Rankine (former book-buyer at Foyles), and Laura Barber (Publishing Director, Portobello Books). You can read judge Sophie Lambert's tips on how to write that all-important killer proposal here.

The winner will receive a competitive book deal, representation by C+W, and publication by Portobello Books, backed by a dynamic marketing and publicity campaign, with promotional support from Foyles.

More information on how to submit work for consideration can be found on Portobello's website.
