The Novella Award is an international literary award biennially hosted between Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire’s Department of Contemporary Arts and Liverpool John Moore’s University, partnered with Sandstone Press, Time to Read and NAWE.

The prize awards £1000 and publication with Sandstone Press for manuscripts between
20,000-40,000 words. Last year’s winner ‘The Harlequin’ by Nina Allan went onto receive
national coverage and was longlisted for the Best Novella in the Saboteur Awards 2016.

This year we will also be announcing the winner of our short story prizes – a series of awards given to a writer from a local school, a writer in our community and an MMU student writer.
