Once again SCBWI British Isles plans to help fresh, new voices in children’s literature find agents and publishers through its Undiscovered Voices anthology project.
Join us for an online panel discussion with this year’s Undiscovered Voices judges.
This free event will tell you everything you need to know to enter the competition – plus offer advice and tips on how to hook editors and agents from the opening of your novel.
Authors from the eight previous anthologies have received publishing contracts for more than 440 books and have been nominated for or won more than 200 literary prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize, Branford Boase Award, Blue Peter Award, the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award, and more than 30 regional awards.
Five UK literary agents and two editors comprise the stellar judging panel for Undiscovered Voices 2024:
- Zoë Plant, literary agent at The Bent Agency
- Amber Caravéo, literary agent and Director of Skylark Literary
- Jenny Savill, literary agent and Managing Director of Andrew Nurnberg Associates
- Saffron Dodds, Associate Agent at ASH Literary
- Louise Lamont, literary agent at LBA
- Sarah Stewart, Senior Commissioning Editor at Usborne
- Linas Alsenas, Executive Editor at Scholastic UK
The kick-off event takes place on Zoom on Thursday 27th April 2023, 8-9 pm.
