Insight on your Inkings

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

Chuffed to have been selected as a judge for this year’s Ink & Insights writing contest, and looking forward to being part of bringing some amazing voices and stories to light!

If you haven’t come across it before, Ink & Insights is a competition geared toward strengthening the skills of independent writers by focusing on critique and feedback from industry professionals. Each entry is assigned four judges who specialise in the genre of the manuscript. They read, score, and comment on the first 10,000 words of the manuscript. This means that for a small entry fee, you will receive FOUR extensive sets of feedback for your work, and advice on where to take it next, for a fraction of the price you might pay a developmental editor!

The top three writers will then move on to the Agent Round, where their manuscripts will land slap bang on the desk of literary agents for a guaranteed read – bypassing all of the query letters, slush piles and intern-penned rejection slips that are usually par for the course. The agents on our panel will read these top submissions, vote on the final placement, and give feedback to the writers. And perhaps the best bit – each of these agents is actively seeking new clients!

The deadline has now passed for 2021 but if you’re an indie embarking on new work, Ink & Insights could be an important step on your journey towards publication - keep an eye on the website ( for submission dates for next year while you’re clocking up your first 10,000 words!
